Planning before a disaster is key to ensuring we respond appropriately when disasters occur. Developing plans for how the County and the Operational Area will respond and recover from emergencies is a collaborative, multi-agency process. EMD develops and maintains numerous plans for specific hazards or essential service functions that require planning and coordination to implement.

County of Riverside Multi-Jurisdictional Local Hazard Mitigation Plan (LHMP)

The plan aims to reduce the impact of a disaster by identifying hazards and developing ways to decrease their impact. Risk assessments rate hazards with the greatest potential impact to the community. In addition, long-term prevention or protection steps are developed to lessen the impact of the hazard. This plan creates awareness of hazards, threats, and vulnerabilities within the community, and paves a path forward for jurisdictions to prepare for local disasters.
