The public is invited to view and to offer input on the final draft of UL Lafayette’s Hazard Mitigation Plan, currently on display at Dupré Library.
The plan was developed by an advisory committee of university and non-university personnel and was funded by a FEMA grant. It addresses 13 hazards: drought, extreme cold temperatures, extreme hot temperatures, flood, hazardous waste releases from both fixed sites and transportation, hurricane, tornado, thunderstorm, acts of violence, transportation incidents, terrorism and communicable diseases.
The draft is available to students, faculty and the general public at the library’s circulation desk through Jan. 14, 2010.
