Public invited to provide input on State Hazard Mitigation Plan
Members of the public can help build a safer Hawai‘i by providing input on the State Hazard Mitigation Plan – but they only have until May 9 to do so.
The plan will be used to guide work in the years ahead to reduce or eliminate the harm caused to Hawai‘i and its communities by flooding, hurricanes, wildfires and other hazards.
The Hawai‘i Emergency Management Agency has been collecting public input on the new plan since December, including a series of meetings across the state starting last month.
A draft version of the 2023 State Hazard Mitigation Plan was published last week. To view the draft Hazard Mitigation Plan, visit the Hazard Mitigation Plans section at the Hawai‘i Emergency Management Agency’s website.
Feedback can be provided via a survey link on that page. The deadline for comments is May 9.
