Survey Introduction

Page1 / 5
 

The City of Los Angeles 2011 Local Hazard Mitigation Plan (LHMP) is being updated. The LHMP helps to lessen the City's vulnerability to disasters, and demonstrates the City’s commitment to reducing risks from all hazards. Once the LHMP is reviewed and approved by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), the City is eligible to apply for pre-disaster and post-disaster assistance to reduce the exposure of its residents to risks associated with the hazards that may occur.

The City would like to engage residents in the revision of the LHMP. The City wants to know what concerns residents most about future disasters, whether they are natural hazards (e.g., earthquakes, floods, and fires), technological hazards (e.g., hazardous materials incidents, power outages, or infrastructure failure), or human-caused hazards (e.g., terrorism, transportation accidents, man-made system failure). The City is concerned about the safety of its residents and businesses, especially during a disaster. This questionnaire is designed to help the City gauge the level of knowledge local residents have about the types of hazards that are prevalent in Los Angeles. The information you provide will help us develop strategies and actions to reduce the risk of injuries and property damage caused by disasters.  

The survey consists of 21 questions and provides an opportunity for you to write your comments at the end. When you have finished the survey, please select [Done] on the final page.

The City of Los Angeles thanks you for taking the time to participate in this information-gathering process.
