1. Introduction

We need your help!

The Rappahannock-Rapidan Region is currently engaged in a hazard mitigation planning process beginning in March 2017, and your participation is important to us!

Culpeper, Fauquier, Madison, Orange, Rappahannock counties and the towns of Culpeper, Gordonsville, Madison, Orange, Remington, and Warrenton are working together to update the region's 2012 Hazard Mitigation Plan. The purpose of the plan is to identify and assess the 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 the regional Hazard Mitigation Plan Update, please contact Patrick Mauney at (540) 829-7450 or visit http://www.rrregion.org/mitigation.html.
