1. Introduction

We need your help!

Our community is currently engaged in a planning process to become less vulnerable to disasters, and your participation is important to us!

Culpeper, Fauquier, Madison, Orange, Rappahannock counties and the towns of Culpeper, Gordonsville, Madison, Orange, Remington, The Plains, Warrenton and Washington are working together to update their Hazard Mitigation Plans. The purpose of these plans is to identify and assess each community’s natural hazard risks (such as floods, hurricanes, and ice storms), and determine how to best minimize or manage those risks.

Upon completion, the plan will be presented to each local governing body for adoption and submitted to the Virginia Division of Emergency Management and Federal Emergency Management Agency for review and approval.

This survey questionnaire provides an opportunity for you to share your opinions and participate in the 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 impact of future hazard events.

If you have any questions regarding this survey, or would like to learn about more ways you can participate in the development of our Hazard Mitigation Plan, please contact Patrick Mauney at (540) 829-7450 or visit www.rrregion.org.
