Disaster responders seek your input

The City of Biloxi, as part of a MEMA-directed effort, is seeking public input to help make south Mississippi become less vulnerable to natural hazards, such as hurricanes, tornadoes, and floods, as well as man-made hazards, including hazardous material incidents.

The input will be used to help prepare a multi-jurisdictional Hazard Mitigation Plan, which will identify and assess the community’s natural and man-made hazard risks and determine how to best mitigate, or minimize and manage, those risks.

“This survey, which takes only a couple minutes to complete, is a chance for residents to take part in the planning process,” said Mark Dronet, assistant chief in the Biloxi Fire Department. “The input from our residents will help disaster responders better understand hazard concerns of residents and the results can lead to mitigation activities that lessen the impacts of future hazard events.”
