THREAT AND HAZARD IDENTIFICATION  AND RISK ASSESSMENT (THIRA)

Limestone County Emergency Management Agency is conducting an annual review of the Threat and Hazard Identification and Risk Assessment (THIRA). All citizens need to understand the hazards that could affect their community. By understanding those risks, communities can work together to make their communities safe. Citizens can understand how to best manage and plan for the greatest threats and hazards they face.  

Part of the annual review of THIRA is involvement of the citizens of the community. With this in mind, we want to know what you think about the hazards and threats where you live. Some of the hazards may not have occurred during your lifetime, however, your input is still desired.  

Please review the THIRA and provide your comments via email by August 23, 2017.
