CCU trustees adopt all-hazards mitigation plan

At its regular February meeting Feb. 24, Coastal Carolina University’s board of trustees approved the adoption of a campuswide all-hazards mitigation plan.

The plan is designed to protect CCU students, faculty, staff and property from the impacts of an array of possible hazards. In November 2014, CCU received a pre-disaster mitigation grant from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) through the South Carolina Emergency Management Division (SCEMD) to develop the plan. CCU’s all-hazards mitigation planning team developed the plan with input from local and state officials and other stakeholders. The plan has been approved by SCEMD and is awaiting approval by FEMA.

In compliance with the Robert T. Stafford Disaster Relief and Emergency Assistance Act, adopting an all-hazards mitigation plan will qualify CCU to apply for federal mitigation grants.
