Five Year Hazard Mitigation Plan Update

The City is currently updating the Hazard Mitigation Plan. Mitigation is the cornerstone of emergency management. It is the ongoing effort to lessen the impact disaster has on people’s lives and property through damage prevention. Through measures such as, creating and enforcing effective building codes to protect property from natural hazards; and engineering buildings and infrastructures to withstand earthquakes, the impact on lives and the community is lessened.

 

The City of Santa Clarita has pledged to do its best to reduce the effects that natural hazards have on our community and residents.

In October 2000, the President signed and enacted the Disaster Mitigation Act of 2000 (Public Law 106-390). This federal legislation requires that all local agencies have a local Natural Hazard Mitigation Plan. This plan needs to be in place within the local agency to be eligible for both pre- and post-disaster federal funding.
