Local Hazard Survey
The Town of West Springfield is collaborating with residents and stakeholders on two important planning initiatives - an update of the town's Natural Hazard Mitigation Plan (HMP) and the Municipal Vulnerability Preparedness (MVP) planning program. These efforts are being funded by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and MA Executive Office of Environmental Affairs (EEA). Both efforts rely on stakeholder and public input to identify hazards and vulnerable populations, and come up with strategies that will be most effective in West Springfield for mitigating natural hazards, reducing vulnerability and adapting to our changing climate. The results of these processes will inform future town spending on mitigation and adaptation. Please help us by participating in this survey. We value your input!
Also, stay tuned for more opportunities to participate as we schedule and hold public engagement sessions in the near future.
