SRU Disaster Resistant Planning Committee announces final session
SLIPPERY ROCK, Pa. - Peter Kroll, principal project manager at URS Corp., will lead the discussion, when Slippery Rock University's Disaster Resistant University/Hazard Mitigation Planning Committee conducts its wrap up meeting at 10 a.m. May 6 in the University Union.
The DRU/HMPC began development of a plan in 2006 to help guide SRU toward greater disaster resistance. The committee worked under the premise that events at the University also affect the local and regional community.
"Our goal has been to be better prepared to deal with hazards and disasters. We believe our current plan provides for efficient and rapid recovery efforts, thus restoring vital services across the board. The plan will also help reduce the impact of a hazard on the University and local and regional community," said John Bonando, assistant vice president for student life and committee chair.
The final session will include time for committee member and public comment.
Those planning to attend are asked to call 724.738.2223.
