What are your opinions and ideas about hazard reduction?

We received the following this week from the Seattle Office of Emergency Management.

How Should the City Spend Your Money on Hazard Reduction?

The City of Seattle is looking for your input on what hazards worry you most. Earthquakes, tsunamis, landslides, snow and ice storms, terrorism are just a few of the hazards that the City can experience. How should the City use limited financial resources to reduce the impacts from the City’s natural and man-made hazards? There are many ways to reduce the impacts, such as regulations, slope stabilization, and public education. The Seattle Office of Emergency Management is updating the existing 2009 Hazard Mitigation Plan. We want to know what you think. There are three ways to tell us:

  1. Complete a fast and easy online survey: www.surveymonkey.com/s/SeaHazMitSurvey
  2. Email your thoughts to:   HazardMitigationPlanUpdate@seattle.gov
  3. Attend this public meeting/open house:

Hazard Mitigation Plan Update Open House – April 8

April 8, 2014 from 6 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.

Rainier Community Center, 4600 38th Ave. South, Seattle, WA 98118

Seattle Office of Emergency Management is hosting a City-wide open house on April 8th to seek comments on what our community sees as the City’s worst hazards and what kind of mitigation actions would they support.

Share your thoughts with us between March 25 – April 23, 2014. What you think matters to us. With your participation we can identify the hazards we should plan for and take actions to reduce the impacts when the hazards strike.

Interpretation and accommodations are available upon advance request to Donna Voss, Project Manager, at (206) 233-5089 or by email at: HazardMitigationPlanUpdate@seattle.gov.

For some background and context, here’s the current Hazard Mitigation Plan (updated in 2009). You can also find this – and other useful documents – here on our website.
