What is Hazard Mitigation?
Hazard mitigation is any sustained action take to reduce or eliminate the long-term risk to human life and property from hazards.
A hazard mitigation plan:
The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) requires local governments to update their Local Hazard Mitigation Plan every 5 years. The 2010 Local Hazard Mitigation Plan (LHMP) was approved by FEMA in March 2011 and was later adopted by the San Leandro City Council.
