Brunswick and Area Counties Seek Input on Natural Disaster Preparedness
Brunswick, New Hanover, Onslow and Pender counties, as well the municipalities within those counties, are seeking public input as they work together to become less vulnerable to natural disasters.
As part of their work to update the multi-jurisdictional Southeastern NC Regional Hazard Mitigation Plan, the participating counties are asking residents to complete an online survey to help better understand the various risks and concerns in our area. This plan identifies and assesses our community’s natural hazard risks and identifies strategies that determine how to best minimize or manage those risks.
Feedback and opinions from residents will assist the entities in creating a more effective and beneficial plan, and your input could lead to mitigation activities that should help lessen the impacts of future hazard events.
If you have any questions regarding this survey or would like to learn about more ways you can participate in the development in the Southeastern NC Regional Hazard Mitigation Plan, please contact Jamie DeRose from ESP Associates, Inc.
The Southeastern NC Regional Hazard Mitigation Plan team will also host a regional public meeting from 6 to 7 p.m. on Tuesday, Oct. 22 at the New Hanover County Northeast Library, 1241 Military Cutoff Road in Wilmington, to gather feedback from residents within the four-county region.
