Hazard Mitigation Survey
Albany County, along with the incorporated jurisdictions of Laramie and Rock River, are currently engaged in a planning process to update the local hazard mitigation plan. This plan is part of a federal requirement to identify risks and become less vulnerable to natural disasters. Your participation in this brief, 10 minute online survey is very important to ensure your voice is heard. We invite all residents to participate in the planning process by taking this on online survey.
This questionnaire provides an opportunity for you to share your opinions and participate in the mitigation planning process. The information you provide will help us better understand your hazard concerns and can lead to mitigation activities that should help lessen the impact of future hazard events. This survey is anonymous and open to the public. Should you have any questions, please contact Caroline Cunningham (Louis Berger), the planning consultant on the project. She can be reached at (919)-866-4413.
Emergency Siren Test
On Friday, March 21st at 10:00 AM, the Emergency Management System will be conducting a 30 second test of the Emergency Sirens. The sirens are located in 8 areas around the county and all will be simultaneously tested. This is a test only. Please do not call 911. If this was a real emergency, the sirens would last for 180 seconds and further information would be available through radio announcements. This will only test connections and a short wail sound will be heard. Thank you for your patience and understanding.
The National Weather Service will be conducting Spotter Training in Albany County on 3-20-2014. The training will take place at Laramie Fire Station #3 located at 2374 Jefferson Street from 6:30pm to 8:30pm.
