SCRCOG Hazard Mitigation Update Survey


The public is invited to learn about the regions’ Hazard Mitigation Plan and to voice their opinions about how each municipality should mitigate risk. The meeting includes an introduction to the contents of the recently developed Hazard Mitigation Plan with an emphasis on actions to mitigate risk to people, buildings, and infrastructure from natural hazards such as floods, winter storms, and hurricanes.

Take the opportunity to voice your concerns and share your ideas. The Zoom meeting is interactive! Participants will answer several multiple choice and open-ended poll questions as well as have a chance to ask questions and participate in a discussion. Plan developers want to know how you recommend your community protect itself from natural hazards.

The fifteen municipalities in South Central Connecticut, with the help of the South Central Regional Council of Governments (SCRCOG), have prepared an update to the region’s Multi-Jurisdiction Hazard Mitigation Plan. This plan names natural hazards and their potential impacts to each community. The plan then identifies activities each community may take to mitigate identified risks. This Plan makes each city and town eligible for Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) pre-disaster funding. This grant funding may be used for projects that mitigate risk to vulnerable residents, build resilient infrastructure and transit systems, and protect the natural environment.
