Lenawee County Hazard Mitigation Survey
Lenawee County is in the process of updating the Hazard Mitigation Plan, which will be used to identify measures to reduce the impacts of hazards impacting the residents of Lenawee County. This Plan will also qualify the County and the participating communities for pre-disaster and flood mitigation funds through FEMA. This questionnaire has been developed to identify the awareness and concerns of the public on hazards, as well as getting your information to the Committee as they develop projects to address the hazards. Your participation in completing this survey is voluntary and is greatly appreciated. All information will be kept confidential.
