Public Survey: Local Mitigation Action Plan

Public Survey: Local Mitigation Action Plan

The City of Dallas Office of Emergency Management (OEM) is conducting a public survey to collect information for residents on their perception of hazard vulnerability, both natural and man-made.

The data collections in this survey will be used for funding projects to lower the vulnerability of hazards identified in the plan. The survey will conclude on November 30, 2015.

We want to know: What hazards you feel affect the city the most? What you think the City should do to protect lives and property?


“Public perception of vulnerability is a huge part of this plan,” Director of Emergency Management Rocky Vaz said. “It is important to us in the Office of Emergency Management that public concerns are heard and acted upon.”

The Basic Plan outlines City’s approach to emergency operations, providing general guidance for emergency management activities. This is an overview of the City’s methods of mitigation, preparedness, response, and recovery.

The plan describes the City’s emergency response organization and responsibilities for emergency tasks. This plan provides a framework for more specific responsibilities through accompanying Annexes. This plan applies to all City of Dallas officials, departments, and agencies.

“This survey will assist OEM in analyzing vulnerability of hazards on the City of Dallas,”Vaz added. “Your assistance will directly lead to prioritization of mitigation actions.”
