CCWD Local Hazard Mitigation Plan
FEMA has targeted natural disaster loss reduction as one of its primary goals. The Disaster Mitigation Act of 2000 requires local governments, including universities and special districts, to have a Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) approved Hazard Mitigation Plan to maintain continued eligibility for certain federal disaster assistance and hazard mitigation funding programs.
Hazard mitigation is defined as any sustained action taken to reduce or eliminate long-term risk to human life and property from hazards. Natural hazard mitigation planning is the process in which natural hazards that threaten a community are identified, their likely impacts are assessed, mitigation goals are set, and appropriate strategies for reducing risk are developed, prioritized, and implemented.
