City of Houston Office of Emergency Management (OEM) Hosts Hazard Mitigation Workshop

Resilient Houston Graphic

City seeks public input on how to make Houston more resilient in natural disasters.

6:00pm - 8:00pm
United Way of Greater Houston
50 Waugh Drive, Houston, Texas 77008

As Houston bounces back from the devastating effects of Hurricane Harvey, the City of Houston is improving its strategy to limit the effects of natural disasters on our community. The Office of Emergency Management (OEM) is in the process of re-developing the Hazard Mitigation Action Plan (HMAP), which outlines a plan for reducing risk through a variety of projects. We are looking for Houstonians' help in ensuring the needs of the whole community are met as we embark on this revision.

OEM is hosting a workshop, open to the public, where residents can:

  • Contribute written or in-person comment to the City's Hazard Mitigation Action Plan
  • Assess their home's risk from flooding, wildfire, storm surge, and other natural hazards
  • Speak one-on-one with representatives from various agencies (such as the National Weather Service, Houston Fire Department, Houston Public Works, Office of Emergency Management and more!) and learn more about steps they can take to reduce their family's risk.
