Emergency Management

The Town of Starksboro engages in emergency management preparation in a number of ways. The Town Plan contains a variety of information related to overall planning in our community. In addition, there are some emergency-specific resources that are updated regularly.

Local Hazard Mitigation Plan Update Announcement

The Town of Starksboro is looking for the public’s assistance in identifying local hazards to aid in updating the Local Hazard Mitigation Plan (LHMP).

As mandated by the Disaster Mitigation Act of 2000, all municipalities are required to complete a Local Hazard Mitigation Plan every 5 years to qualify for FEMA funding should a disaster occur. The plan aids in identifying threats and hazards such as flooding, winter storms, power failures, pandemics, cyber-attacks etc. and then determine mitigation efforts that can aid municipalities in reducing risk and recovery from natural, technological, and human-caused hazards.

The Town of Starksboro has begun the plan update process and is accepting input from Starksboro residents to help identify hazards that impact your community. Please contact Rebecca Elder at or 802-453-8117 with any input or questions.  The current Local Hazard Mitigation Plan can be found on the town website for reference
