Every five-years, the Five County Association of Governments (FCAOG) coordinates with 43 County, City, and Town jurisdictions to develop a Regional Natural Hazard Mitigation Plan (NHMP). This plan equips communities with a strategy to mitigate risks and vulnerabilities to natural hazards common to the area. Hazards prevalent in Southwest Utah include: Landslide, Problem Soils, Earthquake, Flooding, Wildfire, Drought, and Severe Weather.

The FCAOG has previously developed and recorded mitigation progress for three NHMPs in the region. A plan update process began in July 2020 to continue supporting Southwest Utah in hazard mitigation and planning efforts.
