Yolo County Requests Input on Hazard Mitigation Plan

What follows is a press release from the County of Yolo.

Every five years, the county Hazard Mitigation Plan is updated and submitted to the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). The plan addresses threats from potential hazards and identifies possible strategies to reduce impacts. Yolo County’s multi-jurisdictional plan is developed by the county, the cities of Davis, West Sacramento, Winters and Woodland, the Yocha Dehe Wintun Nation, and Yolo County Housing. Hazard mitigation means actions taken to help reduce or eliminate long-term risks caused by hazards or disasters, such as flooding, earthquake, and wildfires. Hazard mitigation actions lead to building stronger, safer, and smarter communities that are better able to reduce future damage when a disaster strikes. 

The Yolo County Office of Emergency Services seeks community input on threats, hazards, and mitigation via a survey. The survey will assist the planning team in assessing community hazard mitigation awareness and preparedness. The survey results will be public and displayed on an online dashboard. In addition, future public outreach and meetings will be incorporated into the final plan update. 

Examples of Hazard Mitigation Actions: 

  • Flood zone mapping
  • Retrofitting existing structures
  • Public outreach projects
  • Erosion and sediment control 
  • Improvements to levees
  • Warning system implementation

We encourage the community to provide input by completing a survey to identify the community’s concerns about hazards by January 31, 2023.  The survey can be found at https://hazard.yolocounty.org. The Spanish version can be found in the language drop-down menu.

The public will also be invited to attend public meetings where information about the plan, including the hazards identified, will be discussed. The meeting dates and times will be shared in early 2023. 

For more information about the hazard mitigation planning process, contact the Yolo County Office of Emergency Services at (530) 406-4930 or email oes@yolocounty.org.
