Hazard Mitigation Plan Public Comment Opportunities
The campus was recently awarded a grant to update its Hazard Mitigation Plan. The project is funded under an agreement with the State of Tennessee. The campus community has an opportunity to provide valuable input to assist the planning team to accurately identify hazards and strategies for mitigating the impact of an incident. We had over 2000 respondents to our survey to collect public input on the potential campus hazards. This feedback was incorporated into the plan. The complete Hazard Mitigation Plan is now being distributed for public comment. The plan is posted on SharePoint for your review. Click this link and provide your NetID and password to access the site. Use this form to provide feedback feedback_utk_hazard_mitigation or stop by the public comment drop-in session at Fred Brown Dorm multi-purpose room between 1 – 4 p.m. on the 26th of September to discuss the plan in person.
More Information on the Planning Process
A hazard mitigation plan is the result of a planning process which identifies policies and actions that can be implemented over the long term to reduce the risk and future losses resulting from hazard events. The Multi-Hazard Mitigation Disaster Resistant University Plan will address a comprehensive list of both natural and man-made hazards likely to impact the University. The planning process is structured around four phases:
Phase 1: Organize Resources; Phase 2: Assess Risks; Phase 3: Develop a Mitigation Plan; and Phase 4: Implement the Plan and Monitor Progress. These four phases are further broken down into 10 steps, shown in the figure.
