I. Local Hazard Mitigation Plan Survey

Dear Community Member,

The City of Irvine is preparing a Local Hazard Mitigation Plan, or LHMP. Like all other communities, Irvine could potentially face widespread devastation in the event of a natural disaster. While no community can completely protect itself against all potential hazardous situations, this plan will help identify those situations, assess our current provisions, and outline a strategy to lessen the vulnerability and severity of future disasters.

Your responses to this survey will inform preparation of the plan. Thank you for your time and cooperation.
