1. Westmoreland County Hazard Mitigation - Citizen Survey
CITIZEN PREPAREDNESS QUESTIONNAIRE - A countywide planning partnership of municipalities, agencies and stakeholders has recently been established to address all hazards that may occur in Westmoreland County. A Hazard Mitigation Working Group has been selected to oversee this process. In order to identify and plan for future disasters, we need assistance from Westmoreland County residents. This questionnaire is designed to gauge the level of knowledge local citizens have about disaster issues and areas vulnerable in your community to any type of hazard. The information you provide will help coordinate activities to reduce the risk of injury or property damage in the future.
You will be asked if your home is located in a floodplain. If you do not know, or are not sure, please check the following sources:

The "One-Step Flood Risk Profile" provides a quick indication of your location with respect to delineated floodplains.
