Hazards are unanticipated events that have the potential to negatively impact people or property.
Hazard Mitigation is all the things we can do to prevent or minimize negative impacts on our communities when these events occur.
The localities of the Northern Shenandoah Valley (NSV) are currently engaged in the proces of updating the region's Hazard Mitigation Plan. The purpose of the plan is to help our region anticipate and respond to hazardous occurences that have potential to negatively impact citizens and property.
Citizens are encouraged to participate in the Hazard Mitigation Plan update by providing input.
- How do you rank potential hazards in the NSV region?
- What are your concerns about emergency preparedness?
- How would you prioritize Hazard Midigation efforts for our region?
