Hazard Mitigation Plan Update

Get Involved!


Lake County, CA:  Lake County is developing an update to their 2012 Local Hazard Mitigation Plan. Floods, drought, wildfires, and severe weather are just a few of the hazards of concern to Lake County. While natural hazards such as these cannot be prevented, a Hazard Mitigation Plan forms the foundation for a community's long-term strategy to reduce disaster losses by breaking the repeated cycle of disaster damage and reconstruction. Additionally, only communities with a FEMA-approved Hazard Mitigation Plan are eligible to apply for both pre- and post-disaster mitigation grant funding and for lower costs of flood insurance to residents through the National Flood Insurance Program’s (NFIP) Community Rating System (CRS).

The people most aware of potential hazards are the people that live and work in the affected community. In addition to plan participation by local, state and federal agencies, the community is seeking enthusiastic, community-minded residents to be part of our Local Hazard Mitigation Planning project.

We encourage attendance and participation from the general public at our upcoming planning team and public meetings to kick off the project; please select the time and location that works best for you:
