HELP ANAHEIM BE MORE RESILIENT IN THE EVENT OF A DISASTER
Public participation is encouraged as part of the City’s Hazard Mitigation Plan
ANAHEIM, CA – (May 12, 2015) Every five years, the City of Anaheim prepares a Hazard Mitigation Plan to identify all elements of the City that could be affected by a disaster such as an earthquake, flood or wildfire. Anaheim Fire & Rescue together with the City of Anaheim invites you to share your opinions on natural disaster threats and participate in the mitigation planning process.
“Similar to an itemized list that a homeowner prepares for their residence, we are seeking the public’s input on elements within our City that concern them in the event of a disaster,” said Anaheim Fire Chief Randy R. Bruegman. “The public’s participation is extremely important and vital to the success of the Plan.”
The Hazard Mitigation Plan identifies and assesses our community’s risks for natural disasters and how to best minimize or manage those risks. Public participation is encouraged by taking a brief survey available online at www.anaheim.net/fire.
This Plan will contain a comprehensive review of the natural disasters that are most likely to occur in Anaheim and projects that the City can undertake to mitigate those risks. The public will have an opportunity to review and comment on a draft of the Plan later this fall. Once completed, a final draft of the Plan will be forwarded to the Anaheim City Council for consideration.
If you have any questions regarding the City’s Hazard Mitigation Plan or questions related to public participation, please contact Cindy Owens, Anaheim Fire & Rescue Emergency Manager at email@example.com or (714) 765-4051.
