Public input needed for Morris County Hazard Mitigation Plan

Community Survey Information Deadline Extended to Nov. 10

MORRIS COUNTY, NJ – The public survey for the Morris County Hazard Mitigation Update has been extended.

Morris County has begun the process of updating the 2020 Multi-Jurisdictional Multi-Hazard Mitigation Plan so all our municipalities in Morris County remain eligible to receive certain types of federal mitigation funding to reduce hazard risk.

The Mitigation Plan focuses on understanding the natural risks and hazards that threaten the county, identifying community capabilities that can be used to mitigate risks, and laying out a comprehensive hazard mitigation strategy to decrease the risks from those hazards.

Public participation and feedback are an important part of the hazard mitigation planning process. The Morris County Office of Emergency Management has developed a brief survey to assist in providing the public with an opportunity to contribute to the plan update.

The survey focuses on the public’s experiences with hazards, including recommendations for hazard reduction. The input provided is vital to completing the plan update.

All information collected from this survey will be anonymous. Complete the survey by Friday, Nov. 10 at
