The city of Greenville is vulnerable to several natural hazards such as winter storms, floods, high winds and drought, that pose a potential threat and could have a significant impact on the city.
City Council adopted a Multi-Hazard Mitigation Plan (PDF), which was required by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) for the City to be eligible for FEMA grant programs. The City's plan has been approved by FEMA, and as a result, the City has made Greenville and its residents less vulnerable to future natural hazard events. Greenville has also ensured that the City is eligible to receive certain types of non-emergency disaster assistance from the federal government in the future. The City of Greenville Multi-Hazard Mitigation Plan exists as an appendix to the County Multi-Jurisdictional Hazard Mitigation Plan.
