1. Introduction

Dear Community Member,

Is your home or place of work susceptible to damage from natural hazards? Do you want to recover more quickly from disasters and prevent future damage from these types of events? Your participation in this survey can help La Palma become safer. We know you are busy; we respectfully request a few moments of your time to respond to the brief survey below.

The City of La Palma is conducting a local effort to prepare a Hazard Mitigation Plan. This plan identifies natural hazards throughout the city and presents an assessment of critical facilities vulnerable to these hazards. The plan lists potential actions to reduce risk and future damage.

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