A partnership of local governments and other stakeholders in Smith County are working together to create a Smith County Hazard Mitigation Plan addressing natural hazards. The original Natural Hazards Mitigation Plan was prepared in 2008 - 2010. This updated plan will focus only on natural hazards identified within Smith County. The plan is developed in response to Federal programs that enable the partnership to use pre- and post-disaster financial assistance to reduce the exposure of County residents to risks associated with hazards.

In order to identify and plan for future natural disasters, we need your assistance. This questionnaire is designed to help us gage the level of knowledge local citizens already have about disaster issues and to identify areas vulnerable to various types of disasters. The information you provide will help us coordinate activities to reduce the risk of injury or property damage in the future.

The survey consists of 36 questions plus an opportunity for any additional comments at the end. The survey should take less than 10 minutes to complete and is anonymous. When you have finished the survey, please click "Done" on the final page.

The Smith County Hazard Mitigation Steering Committee thanks you for taking the time to participate in this information-gathering process.
