Hazard Mitigation Plan Survey

Mendocino County Hazard Mitigation Plan Survey:

The City of Willits, together with the County of Mendocino and 4 other participating jurisdictions, is helping to develop an update to the Mendocino County Multi-Hazard Mitigation Plan to reduce losses resulting from natural disasters. Hazard mitigation is the use of long-term actions to reduce the loss of life, personal injury, and property damage that can result from a disaster. Benefits of mitigation planning include:

--Identifying actions for risk reduction that are agreed upon by stakeholders and the public,
--Focusing resources on the greatest risks and vulnerabilities,
--Building partnerships by involving citizens, organizations, and businesses,
--Increasing education and awareness of threats and hazards, as well as their risks,
--Communicating priorities to State and Federal officials, and
--Aligning risk reduction with other community objectives.

Planning efforts could include capital projects and other pragmatic activities that can mitigate the impacts of hazards. The 2020 HMP Update will cover each of the major natural hazards that pose risks to County infrastructure and residents, such as wildfires, floods, and earthquakes. Recognizing that successful mitigation planning efforts must be communicated and understood by the public, the County approach will include stakeholder participation and input with the use of cutting-edge GIS technology to map and update the hazard information for each hazard profiled in the 2020 HMP.

This questionnaire is designed to obtain your opinion about hazards in the area and what types of mitigation measures should be carried out by the county, cities and towns. The information you provide will help us identify and coordinate projects focused on reducing the risk of injury or damage to property from future hazard events (such as wildfires, floods, and earthquakes).

The survey should take approximately 5 minutes to complete. Your information will be kept confidential, however, we are using e-mails for administration of survey prizes. The final results of the survey will be included within the Hazard Mitigation Plan and posted at:
