Working Towards Equitable Mitigation Strategies In the Event of Disasters 


The County and 10 local jurisdictions are committed to incorporate for the first time an equity lens in the local hazard mitigation plan, which establishes mitigation strategies to reduce the risk of harm for people and infrastructure during a disaster. There are many ways that historically marginalized communities are getting involved in the process thanks to a targeted community outreach process: from participating in the steering committee to conducting surveys and focus groups with underrepresented residents. To learn more about how you can participate visit this website.
