City of Emeryville 2023 Hazard Mitigation Plan Update: Community Hazard Awareness Survey
Dear Community Members:
The City of Emeryville is beginning the process of updating our Local Hazard Mitigation Plan (LHMP). The purpose of the update and the LHMP is (1) be compliant with FEMA requirements and (2) to identify the City’s natural, environmental and man-made hazards and develop a risk assessment and mitigation plan for those hazards. This plan will result in better emergency management during an event and as well as identified projects that could potentially reduce risk in the community. With a plan in place, we can prioritize projects and the City will continue to be eligible to obtain FEMA Hazard Mitigation Grant Funds if a disaster is declared.
The City is soliciting community input regarding what natural and man-made hazards, face our city, as well as opinions regarding methods, and/or techniques for reducing these risks and any losses associated with these hazards.
This is a public opinion survey which will help inform our mitigation planning process for the City. There will be public outreach meetings throughout the update process; however, for our first step, this survey is available for people to become involved and give their opinions as well as provide information which will help guide the plan. If you are interested in being part of the planning team, please send an email to email@example.com.
Your taking a moment to complete the survey is greatly appreciated. All responses must be received no later than November 22, 2023.
