Public Meeting on Regional Multi–Hazard Mitigation Plan
Tuesday July 19, 5:30 – 7:00 pm, Sweetwater County Emergency Management, 731 C Street, Bldg. A, Suite #131, Rock Springs, WY
Region 4 counties, including Lincoln, Sweetwater and Uinta are developing a regional Multi–Hazard Mitigation Plan in 2016 to build community resilience and comply with the federal Disaster Mitigation Act of 2000. The plan identifies hazards such as floods, drought, wildfires, severe weather, earthquakes, and landslides among others and assesses their potential impacts to people and property. A series of public meetings is being held to discuss the plan and solicit input on ideas to mitigate, or reduce, the impacts of hazards before they occur again. All are welcome to attend, learn more about the plan, and participate in the process.
