Webster Parish Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Preparedness (OHSEP), in partnership with the Louisiana Governor’s OHSEP and the Stephenson Disaster Management Institute at LSU, are leading the process to update a Hazard Mitigation Plan.
Local OHSEP director Brian R. Williams said the Webster Parish Multi-Jurisdictional Hazard Mitigation Plan describes the naturally occurring risks to the parish and outlines strategies to reduce these risks to save lives, reduce property damage and lessen the impact of future disasters.
A Zoom meeting for community input will be held from 11 a.m. until 12:30 p.m., Tuesday, August 17.
“Are you passionate about building a more resilient future for your parish?” Williams asks. “Do you have questions about the natural hazards your community faces? Please join us for a public meeting to learn more about the plan and share your input on the risks and vulnerabilities that most impact you and your community.”
Residents of Webster Parish are asked to participate in a survey about public perceptions and opinions regarding natural hazards in th eparish. The survey results will be used in the development of the plan.
