Public survey aims to help plan for natural hazards

A partnership of local governments and other stakeholders in Chelan County is working to update the 2011 Chelan County Multi-Jurisdictional Hazard Mitigation Plan. The plan was created in 2010 in response to federal programs that enable the partnership to use pre- and post-disaster financial assistance to help reduce the exposure of county residents to risks associated with natural hazards, including flooding, earthquakes, wildfires and landslides.

To identify and plan for future natural disasters, a short questionnaire has been designed to help the partnership gage the level of knowledge local citizens have about natural disaster issues, while at the same time learning more about areas vulnerable to various types of natural disasters in Chelan County. The information provided will help the partnership coordinate activities to help reduce the risk of injury or property damage in the future.

Available until early December, the questionnaire includes 34 questions and an opportunity to make additional comments. It takes 5 to 10 minutes to complete and is anonymous. It is provided in both English and Spanish, and is available on the project’s website (about half way down the page).
