About the Update
Among the many disasters that could befall a city of Glendale’s size and geographic location are major fires, earthquakes, flooding, and mudslides. The City of Glendale is committed to providing emergency services should disasters such as these arise, and is currently updating the City’s Local Hazard Mitigation Plan (LHMP) to proactively facilitate and support community-wide policies, practices, and programs that make Glendale better prepared in the event of a disaster.
The City’s Hazard Mitigation Plan must be updated every five years, and with a plan in place, Glendale can continue to be eligible for FEMA Mitigation Grant Funds if a disaster is declared. Although the plan enables the City to be eligible for various assistance grants, the plan’s value really lies in the identification of hazards and better preparing our community for disasters.
Draft Hazard Mitigation Plan
The Draft Hazard Mitigation Plan is available for public review and comment beginning December 10, 2018 through December 21, 2018. Hard copies will be available for review at Fire Station 21 located at 421 Oak St., Glendale, CA 91204 and the City’s Management Services office located at 613 E Broadway, suite 200, Glendale, CA 91206.
Please email all comments to: AGano@GlendaleCA.gov. When emailing comments, identify your name, organization (if applicable,) address, city, state, zip code and phone number. Please also include the page number and section of the plan you are referencing.
