Chino Hazard Mitigation Plan Survey 

The Federal Disaster Mitigation Act of 2000 (DMA 2000) requires a community to have an approved hazard mitigation plan in order to be eligible to apply for and receive FEMA hazard mitigation funds. Receipt of FEMA funding is critical to implementing identified hazard mitigation projects and programs.

The City of Chino is updating it’s Local Hazard Mitigation Plan (LHMP). The purpose of mitigation planning is to identify policies and to take actions that can be implemented over the long term to reduce risk and future losses when an emergency or disaster occurs. Mitigation plans form the foundation for a community's long-term strategy to reduce disaster losses and break the cycle of disaster damage, reconstruction, and repeated damage.

We need your feedback! This questionnaire is designed to obtain your input about areas in the City of Chino that may be vulnerable to various types of natural disasters. The information you provide will help us identify and coordinate projects focused on reducing the risk of injury or damage to property from future hazard events.

The survey should take approximately 5 minutes to complete and is anonymous. Your information will be kept confidential. Information about the LHMP can be found on the City of Chino’s webpage at: www.cityofchino.org
