HENRY COUNTY, GA- January 11, 2018—Henry County is currently engaged in a planning process to become less vulnerable to natural hazards such as winter storms, tornadoes, and floods, as well as man-made hazards, including hazardous materials incidents with the Hazard Mitigation Planning Survey.

The county, along with local jurisdictions and other partners, is working to prepare a multi-jurisdictional Hazard Mitigation Plan Update. This plan will identify and assess the community’s natural and man-made hazard risks and determine how to best mitigate, or minimize and manage those risks.

The Hazard Mitigation Planning Survey is an opportunity for individuals to share their opinions and participate in the mitigation planning process. The information people provide will help the county better understand hazard concerns and can lead to mitigation activities that should help lessen the impacts of future hazard events.

The Hazard Mitigation Planning Survey is available through this link, https://goo.gl/forms/Y86b83BiMLk40rh52 and can also be filled out at any Henry County Recreation and Senior Center. Those who participate should complete the survey by February 14, 2018.

If there are any questions regarding this survey or if you would like to learn about more ways to participate in the development of the Henry County Multi-jurisdictional Hazard Mitigation Plan Update, please contact Margaret Walton (Atkins) at 803-622-4142 or by email at margaret.walton@atkinsglobal.com.
