City of Torrance Local Hazard Mitigation Program Public Outreach
Dear Community Member,
Is your home or office building susceptible to damage from earthquakes, wildfires, or floods? Do you want to recover more quickly from disasters and prevent future damage from these and other hazards? Your participation can make our community more resilient to a disaster. We know you are busy and respectfully request a few moments of your time to respond to this brief survey.
The City of Torrance Emergency Services is leading a local effort to update the City’s Hazard Mitigation Plan. This plan identifies natural and human caused hazards throughout the City. It also presents an assessment of critical facilities vulnerable to these hazards. The new and updated plan will list potential actions needed to reduce risk and future damage.
Although the plan enables the City to be eligible for various assistance grants, the plan’s value really lies in the identification of hazards and helps the City and its residents better prepare for disasters. The current hazard mitigation plan is available online at Torrance Police Department Emergency Services web site: http://www.torranceca.gov/pdf/Hazard_Mitigation_Plan.pdf
Your responses to this survey will help guide the plan update. Thank you for your time and your valuable input.
