The following press release was issued by WUPPDR:
Hazard mitigation is any action taken before, during or after a disaster to eliminate or reduce the risk to human life and property from natural, technological, or human-related hazards.
Officials in Baraga, Houghton, and Keweenaw County along with the Emergency managers are contracting the Western Upper Peninsula Planning & Development Region to update each of these County Hazard Mitigation Plans.
We are asking that any Baraga, Houghton, and Keweenaw County resident take a short online survey. The paper survey and online-link is available at the city and township halls, county clerk’s office, public libraries, as well as
www.wuppdr.org/surveys and will be available until Friday, July 19, 2019.
The survey links for each County are as follows:
The information you provide will help us better understand local hazard concerns and can lead to mitigation activities that should help lessen the impact of future hazard events in your community.
