Posted Date: 12/23/2013 10:30 AM

Official Public Notice

Richardson’s Office of Emergency Management and the Dallas County Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Management are seeking public input on the final draft of an update to the Dallas County Hazard Mitigation Plan.

The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) requires hazard mitigation plans to be updated every five years and public input is a key component to the planning process. The purpose of the plan update is to reduce the vulnerability of people and property in the community to the impacts of hazards. Maintaining a current plan also allows agencies to be eligible for grant funding from FEMA.

The Dallas County Hazard Mitigation Plan and City of Richardson Annex will be available for public comment until Jan. 6, 2014.
