In February 2019, the City of San Marino City Council approved and adopted the City's Local Hazard Mitigation Plan. The plan includes resources and information to assist San Marino residents, public and private sector organizations, and others interested in participating in planning for natural and manmade hazards. The LHMP provides a list of activities that may assist in reducing risk and preventing loss from future disastrous events. The action items address multi-hazard issues, as well as specific activities for earthquakes, floods, wind storms, landslides, wildfires, and manmade hazards.
The primary objective of the mitigation plan is to reduce the negative impacts of futre disasters on San Marino: to save lives and reduce injuries, minimize damage to buildings and infrastructure (especially critical facilities) and minimize economic losses.
This mitigation plan meets FEMA's planning requirements for addressing hazards, vulnerability and risk. Adoption of this mitigation plan is required for San Marino to remain eligible for future FEMA mitigation grant funds and reimbursement of disaster related expenses.
