National Windstorm Impact Reduction Program requests public comments on its strategic plan by May 15, 2017

The National Windstorm Impact Reduction Program (NWIRP) has issued its draft strategic plan and welcomes public comments until May 15, 2017. The plan includes: prioritized goals for the program that will mitigate against the loss of life and property from future wind-storms; short-term, mid-term and long-term research objectives to achieve those goals; a description of the role of each program agency in achieving the prioritized goals; the methods by which progress towards the goals will be assessed; and an explanation of how the program will foster the transfer of research results into outcomes, such as improved model building codes. The plan was developed following review and assessment of prior national research needs and planning documents, as well as consideration of stakeholder input through the 2016 NWIRP Strategic Planning Stakeholder’s Workshop. The draft plan and instructions on how to submit comments are posted online.
