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.
