Kern Multi-Jurisdiction Hazard 缓解 Plan

2019 - 20更新



K白尾海雕县, along with 62 other participating jurisdictions, will develop an update to the 2012-14 Kern Multi-Jurisdiction Hazard 缓解 Plan to reduce losses resulting from natural disasters.  Hazard mitigation is the use of sustained, long-term actions to reduce the loss of life, 人身伤害, and property damage that can result from a disaster.  Benefits of mitigation planning include:

  • Identifying actions for risk reduction through collaboration with stakeholders and the public,
  • Focusing resources on the greatest risks and vulnerabilities,
  • Building partnerships by involving citizens, organizations, and businesses,
  • Increasing education and awareness of threats and hazards, as well as their risks,
  • Communicating priorities to 状态 and Federal officials, and
  • Aligning risk reduction with other community objectives.

规划 efforts could include capital projects and other pragmatic activities that can mitigate the impacts of hazards.  The 2019-20 MJHMP Update will cover each of the major natural hazards that pose risks to County infrastructure and residents.  Recognizing that successful mitigation planning efforts must be communicated and understood by the public, the County approach will include stakeholder participation and input with the use of cutting edge GIS technology to map and update the hazard information for each hazard profiled in the 2019-20 MJHMP.


The 2019-20 MJHMP update will include, at a minimum, the jurisdictions listed below.  It is understood that the County also encompasses areas of land controlled by Federal and 状态 land management agencies, including the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection, 土地管理局, 和垦务局.  While other levels of government have jurisdiction in these parts of the County, the Hazard 缓解 Plan could also be used to document and coordinate mitigation efforts among Federal, 状态, 以及地方司法管辖区.  除了, it will be important to invite organizations such as public and private utility companies to be stakeholders during the update process.

更新要求和DMA 2000

A current and approved hazard mitigation plan is a prerequisite for jurisdictions wishing to pursue funding under the Hazard 缓解 Grant Program (HMGP) if a Federal disaster should occur.  The Stafford Act constitutes the statutory authority for most Federal disaster response and recovery activities, especially as they pertain to FEMA and FEMA programs.

On October 30, 2000, the Robert T. Stafford Disaster Relief and Emergency Assistance Act was amended by Public Law 106-390 and is referred to as the Disaster 缓解 Act of 2000 (DMA 2000).  作为DMA 2000的要求, the Kern MJHMP must be updated every five (5) years to remain in compliance with regulations and Federal mitigation grant conditions.  Federal regulations require hazard mitigation plans to include a plan for monitoring, 评估, and updating the hazard mitigation plan.  A current and approved hazard mitigation plan is a prerequisite for jurisdictions wishing to pursue funding under the Stafford Act.


The County of Kern is using an award from the Hazard 缓解 Grant Program (HMGP) to complete the MJHMP update.  The County has contracted with 动态规划+科学 (DP+S) to update the current Kern Multi-Jurisdiction Hazard 缓解 Plan.  DP+S will provide on-site process facilitation, 利益相关者外展, 数据收集和分析, 计划写, 战略发展.
