(Hesperia) –The City of Hesperia is in the process of updating the five-year Hazard Mitigation Plan (HMP) and is inviting participation from the community. The HMP, approved by CalOES and FEMA, identifies hazards and mitigation potential within the City and will serve as a blueprint for reducing property damage and saving lives as a result of future natural disasters. In addition to preparedness, this plan is necessary to ensure that the City of Hesperia is eligible to receive federal grants and/or aid related to a natural disaster.
The City welcomes participation and input in the update of the hazard mitigation plan. Interested parties can attend the HMP stakeholder meeting on Monday, January 9th 2017, from 3:00 p.m. – 4:00 p.m. in the Police Community Room located at 15840 Smoke Tree Street, Hesperia, CA 92345. Stakeholders can also weigh-in by completing a short survey designed to gather input about locations in Hesperia that may be vulnerable to natural disasters; the survey can be found by visiting https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/mitigationplan. Survey results will help to identify and coordinate projects focused on reducing the risk of injury or damage to property from future hazard events (e.g. wildfires, floods, earthquakes).
