Multi-Jurisdictional Hazard Mitigation Plan


The Multi-Jurisdictional Hazard Mitigation Plan is a countywide plan that identifies risks and ways to minimize damage by natural and human-caused disasters. The plan is a comprehensive resource document that serves many purposes such as enhancing public awareness, creating a decision tool for management, promoting compliance with State and Federal program requirements, enhancing local policies for hazard mitigation capability, and providing inter-jurisdictional coordination.

The federal Disaster Mitigation Act of 2000 requires all local governments to create such a disaster plan in order to qualify for hazard mitigation funding.

San Diego County was one of the first in the State to tackle this planning effort on a region wide basis, and the County's 2004 plan has received national recognition in the form of an achievement award from the National Association of Counties organization.  This plan was last revised in 2023 to reflect changes to both the hazards threatening San Diego County, as well as the programs in place to minimize or eliminate those hazards.

A vital part of the revision process is receiving public input regarding the threats facing our region and potential actions to reduce the impact of those hazards.
