Hazard Mitigation Plan

About the Hazard Mitigation Plan

The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) requires local governments to provide and maintain a hazard mitigation plan. Public Law 106-390, Section 322, commonly known as the Disaster Mitigation Act of 2000 (DMA 2000), and the associated Interim Final Rule, 44 CFR Parts 201 and 206, published in the Federal Register on February 26, 2002 establishes planning and funding criteria for states and local communities.

The 2017 City of Carpinteria Hazard Mitigation Plan is a comprehensive document that evaluates natural, technological, and human caused disaster impacts on the public and local government. It also identifies resources and capabilities and proposes mitigation actions or projects to reduce future impacts. The Hazard Mitigation Plan identifies potential hazards that could impact the City and assists emergency management staff with response planning, exercise development, public education, awareness programs, and other emergency management functions.
