San Mateo County is vulnerable to many natural hazards - including earthquakes, wildfire, flooding, coastal erosion, and heat events. The County is in the process of developing an update to its current plan to reduce risks from hazards countywide, and we want to hear from people living in San Mateo County about your experiences with all types of hazards. The plan being updated is known as the 2016 San Mateo County Local Hazard Mitigation Plan. An update is required by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) every 5 years and ensures the County is eligible to receive funding to prepare and respond to disasters.

The safety of San Mateo County residents, businesses and organizational members, especially during a disaster, is one of the County's greatest priorities. This survey is designed to help the County gauge the level of knowledge community members have about the region's top hazards. The information you provide will directly support the development of strategies and actions to reduce the risk of death, injuries and property damage caused by disasters. 

The survey consists of 25+ questions and provides an opportunity for you to write comments at the end. It will take approximately 10 minutes to complete. When you have finished the survey, please select [Done] on the final page.

San Mateo County thanks you for taking the time to participate in this information-gathering process. For more information on the LHMP and to get involved, please visit:
