Natural Hazards

FEMA Award to the Vermont Geological Survey

The Vermont Geological Survey received the 2004 Award for Excellence for Multi-Jurisdictional Planning at the National Earthquake Conference in Missouri in September.


The Survey was recognized as a leader in New England in using the HAZUS program and for its work with Regional Planning Commissions to get earthquake information into regional and town pre-disaster mitigation plans.

In a region where damaging earthquakes are regarded by the general population as an almost non-existent phenomenon, the VGS has worked to educate the public and make them aware of the reality that this very real threat poses.
