Hazard Mitigation Strategy Questionnaire
Protect PT is participating at the county and local level to aid in the Hazard Mitigation Plan process and the Penn Township Comprehensive Plan update. Both of these plans involved identifying and mitigating hazards such as flooding, severe stormwater impacts, and environmental impacts, just to name a few. We know from talking to residents that there are several people that have already been impacted or are concerned about future impacts from these potentially hazardous events. Please fill out this questionnaire so we may advocate on your behalf when working with these agencies.

County Mitigation Questions
What properties in your community are you aware of that are most at risk from flood events and would have the greatest need for retrofitting or other flood hazard mitigation measures? All repetitive loss and severe repetitive loss properties should be included. Specific property addresses need not be listed (to ensure residential privacy), but names of streets or neighborhoods can be included. *
Which roads in your community would benefit from mitigation or structural projects to reduce vulnerability to flood or stormwater incidents? Also, please specify the types of projects that would most help a high-risk road (for example, new/expanded culvert, road elevation, repaving, etc.), if this information is available. *
What areas in your community are in need of stormwater rehabilitation and upgrades? *
Which areas of your community concern you regarding hazardous materials (HazMat) releases, whether from a fixed facility, pipeline, natural gas wells, or transportation accident? *

Where in your community have land subsidence or sinkholes occurred? What facilities or infrastructure is under threat from this? *
