DANBURY, Conn. -- Danbury’s Office of Civil Preparedness has released a survey to seek public comment on the forthcoming update to the city’s hazard mitigation plan.
The plan, crafted to prepare the city in an event of a natural disaster, contains actions that the city will take to prepare before such events in order to prevent damages.
All those who live or work in Danbury are being asked to take part in the survey and share their ideas.
“We’ve found that a wide variety of public input will help us develop the best strategies for the city,” said Paul Estefan of the Office of Civil Preparedness. “We hope the public will take a few minutes and help out.”
Since a variety of natural hazard events impact Danbury each year, data from the survey will address which types of events residents consider most prevalent and be utilized in identifying the necessary actions to put in place to prepare for future natural disasters.
The hazard mitigation plan will be updated in order to ensure that the mitigation strategy is most sustainable for the area’s specific vulnerabilities.
The survey will run until September 1. After the data is collected, the Office of Civil Preparedness, working with a private consultant, will evaluate which sections of the current plan need to be updated.
When a final draft is produced, parts of the plan will be visible through the City’s website.
The survey is accessible through the City of Danbury homepage. To participate, click here.
