Public Hazard Mitigation Survey

2019 Gogebic County Hazard Mitigation Public Opinion Survey

We need your help!

Gogebic County is currently updating their five-year hazard mitigation plan as required by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). A committee and staff in Gogebic County are working with the Western Upper Peninsula Planning & Development Region (WUPPDR) to update the County’s Hazard Mitigation Plan. Hazard mitigation is any action taken before, during, or after a disaster to eliminate or reduce the risk to human life and property from natural, technological, or human-related hazards. This survey provides an opportunity for you to share your knowledge and participate in the hazard mitigation planning process. The information you provide will help us better understand your hazard concerns and can lead to mitigation activities that help lessen the impact and risk of future hazard events to your community.
