“Hazard mitigation” is any action that protects your community, you and your family, and your belongings by reducing the potential impacts of a disaster. Every community must have a Local Hazard Mitigation Plan approved by the Federal Emergency Management Agency to be eligible for certain types of pre- and post- disaster federal grant funding.
Santa Clara County and the City of San Jose are now updating our Local Hazard Mitigation Plan. As part of this effort, we want to hear from our residents about your concerns and awareness of disasters that could affect our region. As we prepare the plan, we will also be asking for public feedback and will provide opportunities through meetings and surveys.
As a first step, we hope you can jumpstart your involvement by taking a quick online survey.
And for more information about this planning project, you can go to the County’s project website.
Thanks for your participation!
