The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) requires that a jurisdiction actively participate in the HMP planning process, as well as participate in one planning or public meeting held during the course of the update process, to be eligible to adopt the revised Northumberland County HMP as its own.  Between January and April, the County will hold meetings the 2nd Wednesday of every month for stakeholders to provide input in the planning process, all of which will be held at the County’s Administration Center (399 Stadium Drive, Sunbury Pa 17801) next the football field
