2024 Contra Costa County Local Hazard Mitigation Plan

As part of our ongoing efforts to make the County more disaster-ready and resilient, the Contra Costa County Office of Emergency Services (OES) is seeking public feedback on the 2024 Local Hazard Mitigation Plan (LHMP). This plan serves as a guide for the county to become more resilient to the impacts of natural, human-caused, and technological hazards.

In the 2024 update, Contra Costa County worked with over 40 participating agencies. As part of the planning process, we would like your feedback! Please note, that your area might be covered by multiple plans as some cities and special districts share areas.

Interested residents have until May 31 to view and provide comments on the Plan before it is submitted to FEMA for review.
