Public Questionnaire

Knox County, Tennessee; the City of Knoxville; and the Town of Farragut are beginning the process to update the Multi-Jurisdictional Local Hazard Mitigation Plan to better protect the people and property of the communities from the effects of natural hazard events. 

The Multi-Jurisdictional Local Hazard  Mitigation Plan will be the result of a planning process which identifies policies and actions that can be implemented over the long term to reduce the risk and future losses resulting from hazard events.  In addition, a FEMA-approved hazard mitigation plan is a condition for the communities to receive certain types of non-emergency disaster assistance, including funding for mitigation projects. 

It is important for citizens to become involved in mitigation planning in their community.  We request your participation in this short 10-question survey to gather your input on the types of hazards that are your priority concern, as well as your opinion on ways to prevent or lessen the impacts of hazards.
