The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and California Office of Emergency Services (Cal OES) require communities and organizations to develop hazard mitigation plans to be eligible for FEMA grant assistance before and after a disaster. East Valley Water District is currently in the process of updating the Hazard Mitigation Plan and would like the community’s input.
Please take a brief moment to complete the survey below, which will help the District move forward with the plan’s progress.

What is Hazard Mitigation?
- Hazard mitigation is one of the fundamentals of emergency management, along with preparedness, response, and recovery.
- It is any sustained action taken to reduce or eliminate the loss of life, property, and infrastructure from natural and man-made hazards.
- Hazard mitigation is breaking the cycle of disaster, damage, restoration, and repeated damage.
- Hazard mitigation lessens the financial impact of disasters for governments, businesses, and individuals.
