State Hazard Mitigation Plan (SHMP)
The SHMP represents California's primary hazard mitigation guidance document and provides an updated and comprehensive description of the state's historical and current hazard analysis, mitigation strategies, goals and objectives.
2013 State Hazard Mitigation Plan (SHMP)
Approved by FEMA on September 30th, 2013 as an Enhanced State Mitigation Plan, the 2013 plan update continues to build upon California’s commitment to reduce or eliminate the impacts of disasters caused by natural, technological, accidental, and adversarial/human-caused hazards, and further identifies and documents progress made in hazard mitigation efforts, new or revised state and federal statutes and regulations, and emerging hazard conditions and risks that affect the State of California.
Resilience depends on the whole community and is a shared responsibility for all levels of government, private and nonprofit sectors, and individuals. Working together, we can promote and implement mitigation activities and increase our awareness and resilience to threats, hazards, and vulnerabilities, and coordinate the development of mitigation strategies, actions, and plans to manage risk and create long-term sustainability for our state.
