LFP residents invited to participate in Hazard Mitigation Plan survey

Monday, November 24, 2014

To prevent loss of life and protect property from the ten known natural hazards in the region, avalanches, dam failures, earthquakes, floods, landslides, severe weather, winter storms, tsunamis, volcanic eruptions, and fires, the City of Lake Forest Park updates its Hazard Mitigation Plan every five years.

The public comment period began Friday, November 21, 2014 and ends at 5:00pm on Monday, December 15, 2014. The public is invited to help the City build its next plan by offering comments via an online survey, accessed at the link provided below.

At the conclusion of the comment period, City Planners will put the final touches on the plan, which will be presented to the Planning Commission in January 2015. Thank you in advance for your participation.

Hazard Mitigation Survey

A partnership of local governments and regional stakeholders in King County is working together to update the King County Regional Hazard Mitigation Plan. The purpose of this plan is to help local governments reduce the exposure of County residents to risks from natural hazards, such as earthquakes and floods. By writing this plan, local governments are able to apply to Federal programs that may provide money that can be used to reduce risks before and after natural disasters. This plan was first created in 2004 and was updated in 2009.

The City of Lake Forest Park needs your help to plan for the possibility of future disasters. We would like to find projects that will help reduce or avoid impacts from natural hazard events. The following questions will help us measure how much local citizens already know about disaster related issues and will help us identify areas where we need to improve. The information you provide will help us organize activities and prioritize projects to reduce the risk of injury or damage to property from future hazard events.

The survey consists of three questions, and there is an opportunity to provide additional comments at the end. It should take less than 10 minutes to complete the survey. When you have finished the survey, please click "Done" on the final page.

The Lake Forest Park Emergency Management team thanks you for taking the time to participate in this important information gathering process.

The Police Department would like to hear from the community. Please click on the link below to answer a three question survey on the hazard mitigation survey:
