Welcome to the Kutztown University
Hazard Mitigation Plan Update Website


The Pennsylvania State System of Higher Education (PASSHE) has obtained grant funding through the Pennsylvania Emergency Management Agency (PEMA) to update existing Hazard Mitigation Plans (HMP's) for Kutztown University. Pre-disaster planning reduces long-term risk to people and property from natural and human-made hazards.

Recent Announcements

  • Kutztown HMP prepared for PEMA and FEMA review The Kutztown University Hazard Mitigation Plan has been submitted to PEMA for review following the public review meeting on April 23rd. At the public review meeting, several participants shared suggestions for improving the plan. Those suggestions were reviewed and included in the final document submitted for review. PEMA will now review the HMP, recommend any changes and then send to FEMA for final review. The Kutztown University HMP Steering Committee wishes to thank all those that took the time to participate in the HMP update process and provide feedback on the plan.
