Embedding Equity in the Multijurisdictional Local Hazard Mitigation Plan (MLHMP)
The MLHMP helps local jurisdictions to plan to protect the health and well-being of their residents and maximize the protection of properties during disasters such as earthquakes or extreme heat events. The Health Policy and Planning Program is part of the MLHMP steering committee to help embed equity through a process that has not centered equity in the past. Please take this survey to identify how local residents are impacted by disasters. The survey is available in 6 languages. The County’s Office of Sustainability along with other County agencies developed Recommendations for Addressing Equity in Hazard Mitigation Planning, a great tool to operationalize equity in this type of plan.
