Franklin County Florida is threatened by a number of different types of natural, technological, and societal or man-made hazards.  These hazards endanger the health and safety of the population of the county, jeopardize its economic vitality, and imperil the quality of its environment.  Because of the importance of avoiding or minimizing the vulnerability to these hazards, the public and private sector interest of Apalachicola, Carrabelle and Franklin County have joined together to create a task force to undertake a comprehensive planning process that has culminated in the publication of the:  “Franklin County Local Mitigation Strategy (LMS)”.  This task force, entitled the Franklin County LMS Task Force, will continue to host a current copy of the Franklin County LMS on this web site.
