What is a Local Hazard Mitigation Plan (LHMP)?
The LHMP identifies the City's vulnerability to natural disasters and sets goals and objectives for reducing loss of life and property to disasters such as floods, wildfires, severe weather and earthquake hazards.
Why has Fullerton developed this plan?
This plan was prepared pursuant to the requirements of the Disaster Mitigation Act of 2000 so that Fullerton would be eligible for the Federal Emergency Management Agency's (FEMA) Pre-Disaster Mitigation (PDM) and Hazard Mitigation Grant Programs (HMGP).
The PDM program provides grant funds for hazard mitigation planning and the implementation of mitigation projects prior to a disaster event.
The HMGP provides grants to implement long-term mitigation measures after a major disaster declaration.
The LHMP is posted below. Click on the link to download the document in Adobe PDF format.
