Public Input Sought on Hazard Mitigation Action Plan Update
Posted Date: 6/12/2013 7:30 AM

Richardson’s Office of Emergency Management and the Dallas County Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Management are seeking public input on an update to the Dallas County Hazard Mitigation Action Plan.

Survey closed on Monday, 10/7

Residents may complete a brief online survey to provide input about the types of activities that should be considered to reduce future impacts of hazards.

The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) requires hazard mitigation plans to be updated every five years. The purpose of the plan update is to reduce the vulnerability of people and property in the planning area to the impacts of hazards. Maintaining a current plan also allows agencies to be eligible for mitigation funding programs from FEMA. Public input is a key component to the planning process.
