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.
