Introduction

The Town of Mount Washington needs your knowledge of the history of natural hazard events and disasters in Town. Please take a moment to answer a few questions. Hazards pose a risk to people and property, examples of which are flooding, severe rain or snow storms, tornados, drought and heat waves.

The Town of Mount Washington is developing a Hazard Mitigation & Climate Adaptation Plan to: identify risks, both manmade and natural; to develop strategies to eliminate or reduce the potential for loss of life, property, infrastructure, cultural, and natural resources of the Town from disasters; and to develop sustainable cost-effective actions to mitigate risks and the impacts of climate change as well as natural or manmade hazards. Your responses will help guide the Town through the planning process. Survey responses will be summarized in the Hazard Mitigation Plan. All responses are anonymous - no email addresses or specific contact information will be included. Thank you for taking the time to fill out this optional survey.
