We’re examining the hazards facing our community as well as strategies to mitigate (reduce or eliminate) their impact. Our current plans have been approved by the Federal Emergency Management Agency and require an update every five years.

Citizens are asked to complete a brief questionnaire by December 31 which is available online:
