Help Lessen the Impact of the Next Disaster

There's no predicting when the Lehigh Valley will see the kind of damaging floods it saw in 2006, or the punishing winds that Superstorm Sandy brought in 2012, but being prepared requires planning now  -  and your help is needed.  The first public meeting to help update the Regional Hazard Mitigation Plan is scheduled for 7:00 p.m. February 20, at Pinebrook Family Answers, 402 N. Fulton Street, Allentown.  Click here for details.
