Local Hazard Mitigation Plan
About the Plan
San Mateo County is committed to creating and sustaining communities that are more resilient to disasters. In 2016 San Mateo County, in coordination with 18 of its incorporated municipalities and multiple special districts, made a comprehensive update to its Local Hazard Mitigation Plan (LHMP). The LHMP 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, supporting viability after a hazard event, and providing inter-jurisdictional coordination.
