2014 Draft Hazard Mitigation Plan is Available for Review

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 the 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 your feedback on the 2014 Hazard Mitigation Plan, and on how you like to receive information on hazards and preparedness. To review the revised draft plan, see the link below.  Public comments on the revised draft plan will be accepted through December 13, 2013.  Please send your comments to

For questions about San Francisco’s current Hazard Mitigation Plan or the City’s hazard mitigation planning process, contact Francis Zamora at 415-558-3830.
