We have witnessed natural disasters throughout California and even in neighboring counties. In San Luis Obispo County, the Local Hazard Mitigation Plan (LHMP) is our guide for handling local disasters. A draft of the updated Hazard Mitigation Plan is being made available for public review and comment.


For the first time, the LHMP includes all local jurisdictions throughout San Luis Obispo County, so all residents who live within San Luis Obispo County are affected. The plan assesses risks posed by natural and human-caused hazards, identifies ways to reduce those risks, and allows the County and participating jurisdictions to remain eligible for mitigation grant funding from FEMA. 

The County is now soliciting public comment on the plan before it is finalized and submitted for FEMA review and approval. 

How Can You Help?

The public is invited to review the draft plan here.

The public is invited to provide comments on the plan through this link until November 13, 2019.
