As part of an effort to remain eligible for federal emergency mitigation funding, the county is asking residents to fill out a survey which explores locals’ knowledge of natural disaster issues.

The Suffolk County Hazard Mitigation Planning Committee is offering the 21-question survey, the results of which will be used to “coordinate activities to reduce the risk of injury or property damage in the future.”

Funding available in part from offering the survey, according to Southold Town’s website, will be used for beach re-nourishment, elevating structures, and offering backup power for schools and critical facilities.

Complete the survey here.
