Shoreline Office of Emergency Management seeks public input for Hazard Mitigation Plan update

Hazard Mitigation is any action taken to reduce or eliminate long term risk to people and property from natural disasters. 

Hazard Mitigation planning is a process used by State, tribal, and local governments to identify risks and vulnerabilities associated with natural disasters and develop mitigation strategies to reduce or eliminate long term risks. 

The process of identifying risks and mitigation strategies is greatly enhanced by public participation.

The Shoreline Office of Emergency Management is in the process of updating the Shoreline Hazard Mitigation Plan and is seeking public input.

The last update occurred in 2015. You can see that copy of the plan by going to the Shoreline Office of Emergency Management webpage HERE and clicking the “Hazards in Shoreline” button on the left side of the page.

Shoreline residents and property owners can participate in the current plan update process by taking a brief survey HERE. The survey will remain open through July 31. 2019.

Please share your thoughts by taking this 2 minute survey. Your input and ideas are very valuable to the plan updating process.
