1. Introduction

Putnam County Residents,
The County has assembled a team to update our Hazard Mitigation Plan (HMP) which addresses hazards that may occur in Putnam County.  Please help us plan for future disasters by completing this survey regarding natural hazards in the County.  It should take you approximately 15 minutes to complete.

Hazard Mitigation is any action taken to reduce the loss of life and property by lessening the impact of disasters.  These disasters include floods, severe storms, winter weather, extreme temperatures, and others.

This survey is designed to help us gauge the level of knowledge local citizens already have about natural disaster issues. Our survey also asks for information you may have about areas vulnerable to any type of natural disaster. The information you provide will help us coordinate activities to reduce the risk of injury or property damage in the future.  These questions are for information-gathering only and do not necessarily reflect any intent or future priorities of any governing body. This information will be shared with municipal, state, federal and county entities for planning purposes only. 

You will be asked if you live in a floodplain. If you do not know, or are not sure, please check the FEMA website: https://msc.fema.gov/portal/home

You can also view paper copies of the NFIP Flood Insurance Rate Maps at your municipal offices.

On behalf of the Putnam County Bureau of Emergency Services and the Putnam County Hazard Mitigation Planning Partnership, we thank you for taking the time to participate in this information-gathering process.
