Public Comments Wanted on Final Draft of Local Hazard Mitigation Plan

Lassen County, the City of Susanville and the Susanville Indian Rancheria are seeking public comments on the final draft of their Multi-Jurisdictional Hazard Mitigation Plan during a period beginning October 31st, and concluding November 6th, 2017.

According to Susanville City Fire Chief James Moore the purpose of the Hazard Mitigation Plan is to identify natural hazards that have the potential to affect Lassen County – including floods, seismic events and severe storms – and to identify ways to prepare for and reduce the impacts of those hazards when they occur.

“The public is invited to make comments or suggestions with overall consideration to the final draft of the plan,” explains Moore. “Two public meetings were also held regarding the LHMP to solicit input and comments. All comments received from the public will be documented and considered for inclusion into the plan.”

The Local Hazard Mitigation Plan is undergoing a 5-year review by officials from Lassen County, City of Susanville, Susanville Indian Rancheria, Lassen OES and other members of critical infrastructure including Lassen Municipal Utility District, Susanville Sanitary District and others.

“When local officials and the public approve,” says Moore, “the LHMP is submitted to California Office of Emergency Services for review and approval.”

Upon successful approval at Cal-OES the plan is submitted to the Federal Emergency Management Agency for final review and approval.
