(Toledo, OH) Lucas County emergency planners are looking for your public input.
A hazard mitigation plan is required of every county to account for emergencies like heavy rain, significant snowfall-- even toxic algae blooms in Lake Erie. Those plans must be reviewed every five years-- and that's the process the Lucas County Emergency Management Agency is engaging now.
Flooding and active shooter scenarios are all under the microscope-- what's already occurred and what could happen. All those "what-if" scenarios need a plan of action, a "what to do" the public can help consider. There's an economic impact to planning ahead. One consultant says for every dollar spent on mitigation, six dollars can be saved in the face of disaster.
Lucas County EMA have put an online survey on the county website for people to offer feedback.
