Suffolk County, municipalities, Tribal Nations and the Suffolk County Water Authority are in the process of updating its 2014 Hazard Mitigation Plan in order to be eligible for federal grant funding for public and private mitigation projects. The HMP must provide a “blueprint” by which local governments can make coordinated, cost-effective efforts towards reducing losses from natural hazards (coastal erosion, flooding, hurricanes, nor’easters etc.)
The following survey is designed to help identify general needs for mitigation within the County from your perspective, as well as to identify specific projects that may be included in the mitigation plan. Given the COVID-19 pandemic, there are questions specific to this hazard at the end of the survey to help inform future decision making.
Please review and answer the following questions regarding potential mitigation that affects your facilities (police station, fire station, EMS facility) and/or services within Suffolk County. Provide as much detail as possible to support your choice in the Comments box. Where possible, identify specific areas (locations, facilities, programs, policies, etc.) that need to be improved, and your suggestions for possible improvements. If there are other important issues that you feel are not covered by these survey questions, please let us know.
