6. HAZARD MITIGATION PLAN SURVEY
The City of Los Angeles is updating the Local Hazard Mitigation Plan (LHMP) to prepare for disasters and is seeking public input on the Draft Document. The LHMP is a plan to to reduce injuries and losses from disasters and ensure that the critical services and facilities of the City will continue to function after a disaster.
Angelenos know LA better than anyone else, so we want to hear from you! You can provide feedback on the Draft Local Hazard Mitigation Plan at: http://www.emergency.lacity.org/hazard-mitigation-plan
We’ve also developed a survey for residents and business owners to share what concerns them the most about potential disasters. Take this opportunity to let us know what concerns you before, during, or after a disaster! You can take the LHMP survey at: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/CityofLosAngelesLHMPSurvey
Los Angeles has about 284 sunny days each year, but we do face the potential for earthquakes, floods, fires, hazardous materials incidents, power outages, infrastructure failure, transportation accidents, and terrorism. Your valuable input and feedback helps us make LA safer against these hazards and threats. Thank you!
