Hazard-mitigation grant meeting is July 27

MTSU has applied for and received a Hazard Mitigation Grant from the Tennessee Emergency Management Agency, which will provide funds to survey buildings, identify potential hazards and develop strategies to counter identified hazards.

The MTSU Hazard Mitigation Plan will allow the University to apply for grant funds from both TEMA and the Federal Emergency Management Agency for projects to implement the plan.

An essential component in the planning process is community involvement, so members of the MTSU campus and surrounding community are being invited to a public information session and presentation of the final draft of the plan. This session will be held on Wednesday, July 27, from 1:30 to 3:30 p.m. in Room 475 of the James E. Walker Library on campus.

The MTSU Hazard Mitigation Committee will be present and includes representatives from the University’s Environmental Health and Safety Committee; the City of Murfreesboro’s fire, electric, and water and sewer departments; Rutherford County Emergency Management; Hastings Architecture; and MTSU Campus Planning.
