Contra Costa County is in the process of updating its Local Hazard Mitigation Plan. The Plan serves as a coordinating document to help more than three dozen local agencies and special purpose districts reduce their risks from a wide range of potential events. Those can include anything from earthquakes and floods to wildfires and extreme heat.
The update process kicked off in November of 2016, and a multi-agency steering committee is in place to provide leadership and guidance, and oversee the update process. Steering Committee meetings are open to the public; your comments and suggestions are welcome.
