UMW hazard mitigation plan online for review

The University of Mary Washington has released a draft of their 2013 Disaster Resistant University Hazard Mitigation Plan for public review through the end of July.

Here’s what UMW has to say about the plan, which assesses dangers to the campus and prepares emergency protocol:

“As part of the University of Mary Washington’s continuing dedication to the protection of its students, faculty and staff, the Department of Emergency Management and Safety has undertaken an update to the University of Mary Washington Disaster Resistant University Hazard Mitigation Plan. Mitigation is the undertaking of actions to protect University assets from potential hazards. Mitigation planning involves assessing hazards that have previously impacted the UMW community and identifying the best way to reduce or eliminate their impact should they occur again.”
