With record breaking rainfalls over the past 12 months, Christian County is doing their best to help themselves by securing a Natural Hazard Mitigation Plan . A natural hazard mitigation plan will help reduce damages caused by natural disasters and the funding for updating it comes from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). Emergency Management Director Mike Crews says that having an updated plan is what helps us receive federal funds.
The Christian County Hazard Mitigation Planning Committee will hold the first meeting to look and work on the new plan Tuesday June 11th at Taylorville Memorial Hospital Auditorium at 2 PM at 201 East Pleasant Street. The committee will meet five times.
The purpose of the meetings will be to gather and discuss information that will be used to update the natural hazard mitigation plan. Residents that are interested can attend and ask questions.
