Hazard Mitigation Plan

Fresno County, along with 17 participating jurisdictions, prepared this local multi-jurisdictional hazard mitigation plan to better protect the people and property of the County from the effects of hazard events. This plan underwent a comprehensive update in 2023-2024 building upon the plan that was originally developed in 2009. This plan demonstrates the community’s commitment to reducing risks from hazards and serves as a tool to help decision makers direct mitigation activities and resources. This plan was also developed to make Fresno County and participating jurisdictions eligible for certain federal disaster assistance, specifically, the Federal Emergency Management Agency’s (FEMA) Hazard Mitigation Grant Program (HMGP), Pre-Disaster Mitigation (PDM) program, and Flood Mitigation Assistance (FMA), and Building Resilient Infrastructure and Communities (BRIC). This plan also meets the planning requirements of the National Flood Insurance Program’s Community Rating System (CRS).
