Bismarck and Burleigh County Emergency Managers are seeking your input on how we can make our community safer from potential hazards. You’re invited to participate and share your ideas about the development of the Bismarck and Burleigh County Mitigation Plans. A public input meeting is scheduled for February 24, 5:30 p.m., at the Bismarck Veterans Memorial Public Library, Room B, 515 N. Fifth St., Bismarck.
As a participant of the meeting you will have the opportunity to express your ideas and identify potential community-wide hazards, related vulnerabilities and mitigation approaches that would minimize risk and impact to the community. Information shared in these conversations will be gathered to identify key themes, and allow subsequent planning and action in the development of a community specific mitigation plan.
No training or previous experience with mitigation planning is necessary. For residents interested in learning more about mitigation planning on a personal or business level, visit the independent study course titled, “Protecting Your Home or Small Business From Disaster” available at: http://www.training.fema.gov/EMIWeb/IS/courseOverview.aspx?code=is-394.a
