Wake seeks input for natural disaster readiness plan

Posted February 16, 2014

— Last week's crippling snowstorm has Wake County officials thinking about natural disasters and the best ways to deal with the risks associated with them.

The county is seeking the public's help to update its Hazard Mitigation Plan to help make the county less vulnerable to natural events, such as hurricanes, tornadoes, wildfires and snowstorms.

The online survey is available for Wake County residents until March 30.

The plan covers the county and its 12 municipalities – Apex, Cary, Garner, Holly Springs, Knightdale, Fuquay-Varina, Morrisville, Raleigh, Rolesville, Wake Forest, Wendell, and Zebulon.

    Here's some input. Stop wasting money on brine. I saw how useless it is when the roads were hazardous 20 minutes after the first snowflake. I'd like to see a real study of it's usefulness...but if you left one area untreated before the next storm and someone crashed, they'd sue the state...even though there were crashes in treated zones too.
