Bridgeport, CT. The public is invited to a meeting to be held at Housatonic Community College on Wednesday, Feb. 10, from 4 – 5 p.m., in room A228 in Lafayette Hall. The meeting is part of the multi-campus hazard mitigation plan being developed by the Connecticut State Colleges and Universities. The project is funded by a Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) grant.

At the meeting on Feb. 10, Woodard & Curran, Portland, ME, the consultant developing the system-wide plan, will explain the proposal via interactive webcast. The HCC hazard mitigation committee will discuss the specific hazards that could present the greatest threat to HCC’s campus operations and what can be done to ameliorate the possible impacts.

Students, faculty, staff, town and state officials, and residents of the HCC service area including Ansonia, Bridgeport, Derby, Easton, Fairfield, Milford, Monroe, Seymour, Shelton, Stratford, and Trumbull are invited to attend. Parking is available in the Housatonic Garage.
