Mitigation Group To Meet Dec. 12

On Wednesday, Dec. 12, the Palm Beach County Local Mitigation Strategy (LMS) working group will hold a general meeting of its public and private-sector membership at the Wellington Municipal Complex (12300 W. Forest Hill Blvd.) from 9 to 10 a.m. The meeting is open to the public.

The Palm Beach County Public Safety Department’s Division of Emergency Management coordinates the LMS working group, composed of county, municipal and community partners. Its goal is to prepare and promote local strategies and projects to reduce long-term risks to life and property from natural, technological and human-caused hazards.

The resulting pre-disaster and post-disaster mitigation strategies and projects are supported by a variety of state and federal programs. Meeting topics will include updates on the LMS program and the updated project priority list. For more info., call Joe Mercurio at (561) 712-6481.
