Appendix A Glossary
The environmental safety element focuses the protection of the community from environmental and man-made hazards.
The environmental safety element identifies safety issues and provides policy direction to minimize risk and to protect people, property, and the environment. Of primary concern is the protection of the community from floods, hazardous materials, and noise. The element also considers ways to better involve and inform the public.
OVERARCHING GOAL: A well-prepared community that understands and limits exposure to potential natural and human-made hazards and effectively responds to and recovers from public safety emergencies.
Goal 1: Minimized risk of injury, loss of life, property damage, and economic and social disruption caused by natural hazards.
Goal 2: A community that protects the public and environment from hazardous materials and waste.
Goal 3: An environment in which minimized noise contributes to the public's health, safety, and welfare.
