Hazard Mitigation Plan

Updated September 28, 2022


As mandated by the Federal Emergency Management Agency, the City of Cerritos is currently in the process of updating its Hazard Mitigation Plan (HMP). The HMP is a Federally mandated hazard mitigation document, which provides the framework for the ongoing identification and implementation of hazard mitigation strategies developed in the City. The overall goal of the Hazard Mitigation Plan is to reduce the potential for damage to critical assets from natural and man-made hazards.

The HMP was last updated in 2016 and previously in 2004. After the public review and comment period, the HMP will be submitted to State of California Office of Emergency Services and the Federal Emergency Management Agency for review and approval.
