1. Introduction

Westchester County Residents,

A planning committee, along with the support of county, regional and state agencies and stakeholders, has recently been formed to address natural disasters that may occur in Westchester County and develop strategies to mitigate against losses. In order to identify and plan for future natural disasters, we need assistance from the citizens of Westchester County.

This questionnaire is designed to help us gauge the level of knowledge local citizens already have about natural disaster issues. Our questionnaire 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.

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.

This survey will take approximately 15 minutes to complete.

The Westchester County Hazard Mitigation Planning Committee thanks you for taking the time to participate in this information-gathering process.
 
25% of survey complete.
