TOPEKA, Kan. (WIBW) - Shawnee County residents had the chance to learn how to better plan for disasters.

The Shawnee County Emergency Management Agency hosted the meeting between the city and county to discuss a regional hazard mitigation plan.

The plan comes up with long-term policies and actions that are in place in case of a disaster.

Residents could share their ideas on what projects should be included if funding becomes available, such as storm shelters and flood prevention measures.

To be eligible for specific disaster assistance and hazard mitigation funding programs, there must be a FEMA-approved plan in place.
