9/5/2013 8:00:00 AM Hazard Mitigation Grant Program Project
Fulton County, in conjunction with the Indiana Department of Homeland Security (IDHS) and the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) has applied for a Hazard Mitigation Grant Program Project for the installation of an Outdoor Warning System in Delong, Indiana for the warning of citizens in Delong.
Under the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA), EO 11988 and EO 11990, public notice is required of any federal actions that affect floodplains or wetlands. All necessary permits will be obtained prior to construction and completion of the project.
The objectives of the Hazard Mitigation Grant Program are to prevent future losses of lives and property, to implement state or local Hazard Mitigation plans, to enable mitigation measures to be implemented during immediate recovery from disaster, and to provide funding for identified and approved hazard mitigation projects.
All comments should be directed to Duane Castaldi, Regional Environmental Officer. Public participation is encouraged. Interested parties and/or citizens are invited to comment on the project either in writing to: Duane Castaldi, Regional Environmental Officer, FEMA Region V, 536 South Clark Street, 6th Floor, Chicago, IL 60605 OR e-mail Duane.Castaldi@fema.dhs.gov.
