Hazard Mitigation Planning Survey

• Bookmarks: 78


October 20, 2021

Editor’s Note: From the Village of Tarrytown:

We know you all love surveys… well the County (and Tarrytown) have another one we’d like you to participate in. Survey Link Closes in about a month’s time. You can access the survey here. By completing this survey, you can play a part in helping the Village obtain access to grant funding for hazard mitigation! More info can be found below….


A planning committee, along with the support of county, regional and state agencies and stakeholders, has recently been formed to address natural disasters that may occur in Westchester County and develop strategies to mitigate against losses. In order to identify and plan for future natural disasters, we need assistance from the citizens of Westchester County.

This questionnaire is designed to help us gauge the level of knowledge local citizens already have about natural disaster issues. Our questionnaire also asks for information you may have about areas vulnerable to any type of natural disaster. The information you provide will help us coordinate activities to reduce the risk of injury or property damage in the future.

You will be asked if you live in a floodplain. If you do not know, or are not sure, please check the FEMA website: https://msc.fema.gov/portal/home.

This survey will take approximately 15 minutes to complete.

The Westchester County Hazard Mitigation Planning Committee thanks you for taking the time to participate in this information-gathering process.
