Multi-jurisdictional Hazard Mitigation Plan

Font Size Extra Large Font Size Large Font Size Default


The Multi-hazard Mitigation Plan is a countywide plan that identifies risks and ways to minimize damage by natural and manmade disasters. The plan is a comprehensive resource document that serves many purposes such as enhancing public awareness, creating a decision tool for management, promoting compliance with State and Federal program requirements, enhancing local policies for hazard mitigation capability, and providing inter-jurisdictional coordination.

The federal Disaster Mitigation Act of 2000 requires all local governments to create such a disaster plan in order to qualify for funding in the future.

San Diego County is one of the first in the State to tackle this planning effort on a region wide basis, and the County's 2004 plan has received national recognition in the form of an achievement award from the National Association of Counties organization.

2009 Revision and Public Input:

A vital part of this process is receiving public input regarding the threats facing our region and potential actions to reduce the impact of those hazards.

Please take the time to review your jurisdiction’s portion of the plan. We would like you to answer the following questions:

1. How would you rate the hazards facing San Diego? Please rank them from most important to least important.

2. Are there any hazards that should be evaluated in the plan that are not currently included? If so, please rank them from most important to least important.

3. What actions would you add to the strategies discussed in the plan? How would you prioritize them?

4. How can we better communicate these risks to the public?

5. Is there anything else you would like to see in the plan?

Your comments will be reviewed by the Hazard Mitigation Plan Working Group and incorporated into the final plan as appropriate. Please send your comments to:
