The following is a message from Yolo County.
The Office of Emergency Services seeks public input on potential hazards impacting Yolo County and possible strategies to reduce those impacts.
The Yolo County Hazard Mitigation Plan assesses the risk of floods, drought, wildfires, severe weather, and other natural hazards of concern to the county. To view the 2018 plan, click here.
Every five years, the plan is updated and submitted to the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). In partnership with the cities and special districts in Yolo County, the 2023 update will address an updated list of hazards, assess the likely impacts of those hazards, revise goals, and prioritize projects to reduce the effects of future disasters.
As part of the process, residents are encouraged to provide input by attending one of the scheduled public meetings where information about the plan, including the hazards identified, will be discussed. Hard copies of the plan will be available at the scheduled public meetings and will be available here after the meetings.
The meeting hosted here in Woodland is scheduled for June 7 at 10:30 AM.
