Forum to Detail Plan for Reducing Risks from Natural and Man-made Hazards
The Calvert County Department of Public Safety, Division of Emergency Management, and the Department of Community Planning and Building are hosting a public forum to discuss the county’s hazard and flood mitigation plans Monday, November 28.
Staff will detail current plans and open the forum for public comment and questions at the Harriet E. Brown Community Center at 901 Dares Beach Road in Prince Frederick from 6:30-8:30 p.m. The goal of the flood mitigation plan is to reduce or eliminate long-term risks to people and property from the effects of natural hazards such as tornadoes, floods, hurricanes, severe storms, droughts, landslides and other events.
Calvert County’s Hazard Mitigation Plan identifies and assesses potential natural hazards and man-made events, evaluates local mitigation measures that should be undertaken, including public outreach before and during major events, and outlines procedures for monitoring the implementation of mitigation strategies.
