The City of Los Angeles has updated its Local Hazard Mitigation Plan (LHMP) to prepare for disasters with the help of public input via a Public Hazard Mitigation Survey.  The LHMP is a plan to implement actions to reduce injuries and losses from disasters and ensure that the critical services and facilities of the City will continue to function after a disaster. Los Angeles has about 284 sunny days per year, but it does face the potential for earthquakes, floods, fires, extreme heat, hazardous materials incidents, power outages, infrastructure failure, transportation accidents, or even terrorism. 

Angelenos know LA better than anyone else, so residents, business owners, and City employees were asked to share what concerned them the most about potential disasters as the LHMP was being updated.
