Public Invited to Comment on Worcester County Emergency Services Hazard Mitigation Plan Update

Worcester County Emergency Services (WCES) officials invite area citizens to partner with them as they work through summer 2019 on an update to the 2014 Hazard Mitigation Plan. The project goal is to minimize impacts from hazard events, and area residents can help in the planning process in two ways.First, WCES officials are placing special emphasis on citizens’ concerns related to hazards, and they invite all to take part in a public survey, which is available online at http://www.co.worcester.md.us/departments/emergency.

Survey results will be included in the updated plan document.  
Second, WCES will host the next public meeting on the hazard mitigation plan update on July 25, 2019 at 1 p.m., in room 1102 of the Worcester County Government Center, which is located at One West Market Street in Snow Hill. Citizens are encouraged to attend and participate in the meeting.  
“Input from our citizens will not only create a strong Hazard Mitigation Plan, but will serve to strengthen the resilience of our community and increase awareness of potential hazards we may face if the unthinkable were to happen,” WCES Planner Tina Vickers said.

For more information on the plan development process and how you can participate, please call Vickers at 410-632-1315.
