Local Hazard Mitigation Plan Update

Its Purpose

The City of Chino Hills is beginning the process of updating our Local Hazard Mitigation Plan (LHMP). The purpose of the update and the LHMP is to:

  • Be compliant with FEMA requirements
  • To identify the City's natural, environmental, and man-made hazards
  • Develop a risk assessment and mitigation plan for those hazards
  • Improve emergency management during an event
  • Identify projects that could potentially reduce risks in the community

The City's Hazard Mitigation Plan must be updated every five years to ensure that the City properly assesses the probability of various types of natural and man-made hazards and their impacts to the community in order to maintain eligibility for State and Federal Grant funding. With a plan in place, City staff can continue to prioritize projects and the City will continue to be eligible to obtain FEMA Mitigation Grant Funds if a disaster is declared.
