The City of Emeryville is in the process of updating its Local Hazard Mitigation Plan (LHMP). The purpose of the update and the LHMP is to 1) be compliant with FEMA requirements and 2) to identify the City’s natural, environmental and man-made hazards and develop a risk assessment and mitigation plan for those hazards. This plan will result in better emergency management during an event as well as identify projects that could potentially reduce risks in the community. With a plan in place, we can prioritize projects and the City will continue to be eligible to obtain FEMA Hazard Mitigation Grant Funds if a disaster is declared.
The first update planning meeting will be held in June. If you are interested in being part of the planning team, please send an email to LHMP@emeryville.org.
