A Multi-campus Hazard Mitigation Plan forum is being held in Danbury this afternoon. The Forum is being hosted by Western Connecticut State University and the Connecticut State Colleges & Universities to identify natural hazards and vulnerabilities. The plan would also come up with steps that can be taken to reduce the risks they pose.
The plan would cover the four Connecticut State Universities, 12 Community Colleges and Charter Oak State College.
The goal is to help the campuses identify and reduce risks from natural hazards, identify actions that can be taken to prevent loss of life and damage to property, and prioritize funding for mitigation efforts. The Hazard Mitigation Plan will describe the vulnerability at each campus to various natural hazards, along with projects that can be undertaken to reduce risks.
The forum is at 2pm at the Midtown Student Center.
