Interested in reducing Houston’s natural hazards?
According to the City of Houston Office of Emergency Management, they are updating the Hazard Mitigation Action Plan. This project is funded by the city, state and federal dollars to reduce natural hazards. The City will host a public meeting for the communities feedback before the planners re-work the plan. This meeting will provide a project overview from H2O Partners, Inc, and solicit information such as identifying and analyzing potential hazards that will affect residents. These hazards include floods, hurricanes, wildfires, winter storms, and any other major disasters. The goal of the plan is to decrease the amount of natural hazards and get rid of the long-term risk to human life and property from know hazards by seeking and applying cost-effective mitigation actions. If you are unable to attend the public meeting, information about the planning process and participation survey can be obtained by contacting Heather Ferrara, H2O Partners, Inc by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone to Jeffrey Lacour in the Office of Management at 713.884.4459. Let’s help keep Houston safe and clear of natural hazards.
The meeting will take place Tuesday, May 2nd from 6:30-7:30 pm.
