2019 Hazard Mitigation Plan
In conjunction with Mount San Antonio College and the Walnut Valley Unified School District, the City of Walnut is developing a Multi-Jurisdictional Hazard Mitigation Plan to reduce the impacts of future disasters on people and property, as well as to the City’s critical facilities and infrastructure. Communities with a FEMA-approved Hazard Mitigation Plan are eligible for FEMA pre- and post- disaster grant funding and are better positioned to recover when disasters occur.
FEMA defines Hazard Mitigation as any action taken to reduce or eliminate the long-term risk to human life and property from natural hazards. Hazard mitigation planning is a process for State and local governments to identify community-level policies and actions to mitigate and thus reduce the impacts of natural hazards.
Staff is continuing to work on the drafting of the 2019 Hazard Mitigation Plan, having completed one (1) round of review from the State (Cal OES).
