Public invited to participate in creation of The Citadel’s hazard mitigation plan
The Citadel is preparing a Disaster Resistant University Multi-Hazard Mitigation Plan in an effort to better protect the college’s cadets, students, faculty and staff, as well as its property, from the effects of natural and man-made hazardous events. This goal is to identify ways The Citadel can mitigate risks from hazards ranging from flooding and earthquakes to tornadoes and severe winter weather.
Public meetings will be held at 6:30p.m., on June 29 and 30, in room 165 of Bond Hall, which is #47 on the virtual map. Future meetings will be posted here and on The Citadel’s Facebook and Twitter accounts.
The development of the plan is funded by a grant from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). When final, the plan will be compliant with the Disaster Mitigation Act of 2000, which encourages coordination between local, state, and federal governmental entities to assess risks in order to help deflect the negative impacts of a hazardous event or natural disaster.
