1. The Purpose of This Survey

Brazos County is working to become less vulnerable to natural disasters, and your participation in this planning process is important to us!

Our County, along with local jurisdictions and other partners (including but not limited to the cities of Bryan, College Station, Kurten, Wixon Valley and Texas A&M University), are working to prepare an update to our current Hazard Mitigation Plan. This plan identifies and assesses our community’s natural hazard risks and develops strategies and actions to minimize or manage those risks.    

Having an established Hazard Mitigation Plan is important to citizens in that it helps to reduce flood insurance rates, reduces damage/loss to personal property and creates the ability to apply for recovery funds should a Federal Disaster Declaration be issued.

The following survey will help you share your opinions and participate in our mitigation planning process. The information you provide will help us better understand your hazard concerns and can lead to mitigation activities that should help lessen the impacts of future hazard events.

The anticipated draft of our Hazard Mitigation Plan Update is expected Fall 2016 and is due for finalization by FEMA in November 2017.
