The Atlanta-Fulton County Emergency Management Agency (AFCEMA) will hold a public meeting at 6:30 pm on Wednesday, March 9, 2016. ¬† Attendees will receive an overview of the hazard mitigation planning process and will have the opportunity to offer recommendations. The meeting will be held at the Metropolitan Branch Library, 1332 Metropolitan Parkway, Atlanta 30310. ¬†
AFCEMA is currently working on updating the Fulton County Multijurisdictional Hazard Mitigation Plan in partnership with local municipalities. ¬† One of the program mandates is to solicit comments and suggestions from our citizens ¬†in the form of three (3) community meetings.
AFCEMA is also asking Fulton County residents to answer a brief survey to assist AFCEMA in creating strategies to mitigate a hazardous event. At any time, a hazard such as floods, tornadoes, and severe storms affecting life and property could happen. Input from residents will greatly help in the development of a strategy. Residents are urged to log-on to http://svy.mk/1Zz6v8M to complete a brief survey to help AFCEMA help them when disaster happens.
The Atlanta-Fulton County Emergency Management Agency is responsible for providing management and coordination of mitigation, preparedness, response, and recovery activities for all municipalities within Fulton County. This is accomplished via hazard mitigation as well as preparation and response planning done in partnership with City and County agencies, regional and state level partners, non-profit entities, schools and the private sector.
The final plan will be submitted to the Federal Emergency Management Agency (AFCEMA) for approval. ¬†
