Thank you for participating in this survey. This year, local, county and special district government agencies will update the region's plan for reducing the threat to life and property from man-made and natural disasters. The results of this survey will be essential in helping a regional working group understand concerns and questions the community has about the threats the region faces and will guide discussions as the group revises the San Diego Multijurisdictional Hazard Mitigation Plan.
The San Diego Multijurisdictional Hazard Mitigation Plan is a framework that guides communities in making decisions and developing policies to reduce or eliminate risk to life and property. It identifies the types of hazards that threaten our communities, evaluates our vulnerabilities and outlines a strategy to reduce or eliminate the risk posed by those threats. The state and federal governments often require counties, cities and special districts to complete a Hazard Mitigation Plan in order to be eligible for certain types of disaster assistance and recovery funding. The County of San Diego, the 18 incorporated cities and many special districts are now updating the plan originally developed in 2004 and updated in 2010.
