Hazard Mitigation Plan Update

The San Francisco Department of Emergency Management (SFDEM) is looking for your input on the City’s Hazard Mitigation Plan. The existing plan was approved in 2009 and must be updated every five years.

The Hazard Mitigation Plan describes our City’s natural and human-made hazards, identifies actions we can take to reduce their effects, and establishes a process for implementing the plan.  An approved plan makes San Francisco eligible for federal hazard and flood mitigation grant funding before and after a Presidentially-declared disaster.

How can you help?
We’re looking for feedback on both the existing and updated plans, and on how you like to receive information on hazards and preparedness.

To review San Francisco’s existing plan visit www.sfdem.org/hmp.  Comments on the plan should be sent to dem.communityaffairs@sfgov.org. Comments on the existing plan will be accepted through September 30.  A revised Hazard Mitigation Plan will be released for comment in October.

SFDEM appreciates your participation!  As partners in updating the Hazard Mitigation Plan, we can think through and better prepare for the hazards we face together.
