Hazard Mitigation Info Session Planned

Land SlideOn Thursday January 8, 2015, the Warren County Soil and Water Conservation District (SWCD) and the Warren County Office of Emergency Services (OES) will present a program on Hazard Mitigation from 6 to 7 pm in the Christine L. McDonald Community Room at the Crandall Public Library in Glens Falls.

In Warren County significant natural events impact communities and residents including flooding from severe rains, and beaver dam failures, land slides and high winds.

Warren County is in the initial stages of redeveloping its Multi-jurisdictional Hazard Mitigation Plan and is seeking to inform the public about hazard mitigation and what residents can do to protect yourself and assist their community.

For more information contact Jim Lieberum at the Warren County SWCD (518) 623-3119) or Amy Drexel at the Warren County OES (518) 761-6240.
