Public Questionnaire

Peoria County is beginning the process to prepare a Local Multi-Hazard Mitigation Plan to better protect the people and property of the unincorporated areas of Peoria County from the effects of natural and man-made hazard events.  The Local Multi-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 Peoria County 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.  The Peoria County Hazard Mitigation Planning Committee requests your participation in this short 10-question survey.  The Committee would like 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.
