Road and Travel Information
Platte County faces many hazards every year. Some are natural causes while some are manmade,
like hazardous material spills and terrorism. Each year the Local Emergency Planning Committee
meets to review these hazards and plan for major events. The disasters are rated on frequency,
magnitude, warning time and severity. They look at lives affected and property damage potential.
We then develop plans that involve response and mitigation to these hazards. Our next step is to
exercise these plans and make changes as needed.
Planning and preparing for these disasters results in saving lives and reducing damage to property.
