Yuba County received a grant from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA)
to create a county-wide multi-hazard mitigation plan.
Our County has a history of devastating disasters. Each one of these
disasters has cost the taxpayers millions of dollars in recovery
costs. The Yuba County Multi-Hazard Mitigation Plan is
designed to mitigate against the hazards that affect Yuba County,
protecting the lives and property of all of its citizens, as well
as reducing the costs to the County.
The plan incorporates all jurisdictions within the County, helping to ensure
that all citizens will be protected when disaster strikes. The plan process is
designed to provide a forum for collaboration, establishing the groundwork for
future interagency cooperation in pre-disaster planning and emergency response.
The scope of work submitted for plan development is one of the most ambitious in
the nation and resulted in the largest planning grant awarded during the
2003-2004 fiscal year.
