Hazard Mitigation Plan Update
The San Francisco Department of Emergency Management (SFDEM) and other City and County of San Francisco departments have completed a draft update of the City’s Hazard Mitigation Plan (HMP). The existing plan was approved in 2009 and must be updated every five years. To review the revised draft plan or the current HMP, see the links below.
The Hazard Mitigation Plan describes our City’s natural and human-made hazards, identifies actions we can take to reduce their effects, and establishes a process for implementing the plan. An approved plan makes San Francisco eligible for federal hazard and flood mitigation grant funding before and after a Presidentially-declared disaster.
