Would you like to learn more about what Fresno County is doing to minimize the impacts of floods, dam failures, wildfires, drought, and other hazards? A draft of the updated Multi-Jurisdictional Hazard Mitigation Plan is being made available for public review and comment. The plan assesses risks posed by natural and man-made hazards, identifies ways to reduce those risks, and allows the county and participating jurisdictions to be eligible for mitigation grant funding from FEMA.

A multi-jurisdictional planning team, including representatives from 13 municipalities, developed the plan over the past nine months with assistance from a consultant. The County is now soliciting public comment on the plan before it is finalized and submitted for FEMA review and approval.

The comment period will be April 16-30, 2018.

The plan and comment form are available at fcdph.org/oes
