“PUBLIC IS ASKED TO ASSIST WITH REVISIONS TO THE HAZARD MITIGATION PLAN”
The Countywide mitigation plan was originally implemented in 2003.The purpose of the plan is to identify all probable natural hazards that could occur in Fairfield County and what can be done in advance to mitigate those events. The protection of life and property is paramount and the driving force behind this plan. The Fairfield County 2011 Natural Hazards Mitigation Plan will be revised over the next several months and be replaced with an updated version. The Fairfield County Emergency Management Agency is giving the County residents an opportunity to be part of updating the plan.
Fairfield County Emergency Management Agency is requesting public review and comment on the expiring countywide plan and assistance in making needed changes for the update. Fairfield County Emergency Management will work with a committee of subject matter experts to complete the revisions of the plan in 2017, or prior to the deadline of June 2017.
Jon Kochis, Fairfield County EMA Director says “We are asking the public to help identify all known mitigation actions across Fairfield County in order to reduce our risk from flooding, tornadoes and other natural hazards. Input from the citizens of Fairfield County is very important.”
The public may review the 2011 Natural Hazard Mitigation Plan here.
