Hazard Mitigation

Los Angeles County, in conjunction with its many emergency services partners, has prepared a Local All-Hazards Mitigation Plan that sets strategies for coping with the natural and man-made hazards faced by residents. The plan is a compilation of information from County departments correlated with known and projected hazards that face southern California. The plan complies with, and has been approved by, FEMA and the Governor’s Office of Emergency Services (OES). The plan has been formally adopted by the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors for use in the development of specific hazard mitigation proposals that have a high cost-benefit ratio.

The County of Los Angeles All-Hazards Local Hazard Mitigation Plan addresses potential damages in the unincorporated portions of the County as well as to County facilities. Cities, schools, special districts and eligible non-profit organizations within Los Angeles County must prepare and submit separate Hazard Mitigation Plans to FEMA for approval. Please contact the Office of Emergency Management for additional information at (323) 980-2260.
