Vacation Safe this Summer
If travelling to a hurricane prone state – especially coastal states – any time during the summer into the early fall, be sure to familiarize yourself with the emergency plans of the community in which you’re vacationing. All hotels and motels should have emergency plans in place for sheltering and/or evacuation – ask to see them upon check-in. Remember, hurricane hazards come in many forms, including storm surge, heavy rainfall, inland flooding, high winds, tornadoes and rip currents. If you’re driving, be sure to have emergency supplies in your car, such as, a flashlight, water and a first aid kit. Be mindful that coastal areas are prone to severe flooding – so know the evacuation routes in your vacation spot and always remember if you come upon a flooded roadway in your vehicle, Turn Around, Don’t Drown!
Open for Comment: Lane County Natural Hazards Mitigation Plan
Open for Comment: Continuous
Lane County Emergency Management has opened for comment the 2011 Update to the Lane County Natural Hazards Mitigation Plan (Plan Update). The purpose of the Plan Update is to present the accomplishments of the past five years and to outline mitigation actions for the next five years (see 2006 Action Item Update Overview section in Plan Update document). Also in the Plan Update is an overview of the many potential hazards that could occur in Lane County. Being aware of local hazards is one of the best tools the public can use to become better prepared for unexpected hazardous incidents.
The preparation of the Plan Update demonstrates Lane County’s commitment to reduce the public’s and built environment’s vulnerability to natural and human-caused hazards. Public input to this Plan Update is highly regarded as key to ensuring the Plan Update’s relevance to the community and long-term effectiveness. Please take a moment to review and comment on the plan.
