Hazard Mitigation Plan Survey (2016-11-15 15:13:31)

Watauga County Emergency Management is asking for the public’s assistance in answering questions about Hazard Mitigation.

 Watauga County is one of four counties involved in the High Country Regional Hazard Mitigation Plan.  Other counties involved are Ashe, Wilkes, and Alleghany. 

A Hazard Mitigation Plan must be in place for these counties to be eligible for federal funding in the event of a disaster.

In a release, Taylor Marsh, assistant county fire marshal, said the High Country Regional Hazard Mitigation Plan must be updated every five years and submitted to FEMA for approval.

Your input is requested to provide information to Emergency Management officials to better serve you. You can take the survey here.
