COUNTY NEWS RELEASE
Los Alamos County Emergency Management (EM) Division is working with Integrated Solutions Consulting (ISC) to hold two in-person public meetings regarding the importance of hazard mitigation planning and an overview of the County’s Plan. Citizens are encouraged to attend either meeting on February 8 from 5-6:30 p.m. at Fuller Lodge (2132 Central Ave, Los Alamos), or February 9 from noon-1 p.m. at the White Rock Fire Station #3 (129 NM-4, White Rock).
The purpose of hazard mitigation planning is to identify policies and actions that can be implemented before a disaster occurs to reduce risk and future losses. Mitigation forms the foundation for a community’s long-term strategy to break the cycle of disaster damage, reconstruction, and repeated damage.
During the public meetings, representatives from ISC will provide an overview of the Hazard Mitigation Plan, share results from the Hazard Mitigation Survey conducted in fall 2022, provide examples of individual mitigation actions citizens can take to ensure their homes and families are prepared, and conduct a question-and-answer session. Light refreshments will be provided.
If you have any questions, please contact Cody Ulrich at (505) 662-8290.
