Online survey available through Sept. 17
KILLEEN, Texas (Aug. 17, 2023) – The City of Killeen’s Office of Homeland Security & Emergency Management is seeking community input on the Bell County Hazard Mitigation Action Plan. This is the community’s chance to review and provide critical feedback regarding hazards identified in the area and potential action items to mitigate and lessen the impact of those hazards.
A hazard mitigation action plan is a comprehensive strategy designed to reduce the impact of potential hazards and minimize the risks they pose to the community. The hazard plan serves as a roadmap for identifying, assessing, and prioritizing hazards, as well as outlining specific actions to mitigate their effects.
By identifying vulnerabilities and implementing appropriate measures, communities and organizations can better prepare themselves for potential disasters, enhance their resilience, and ensure a safer and more sustainable future for all.
It is important for the public to give feedback on this plan as it is a 5-year plan that sets a path for communities to work on hazard mitigation action items, such as brush clearing, stream monitoring, outdoor warning sirens, building codes, or generators for critical infrastructure.
The 16-question survey takes about three minutes to complete and can be found on our Emergency Management webpage at www.KilleenTexas.gov/OEM and will be open through Sept. 17.
