To make the County more disaster-ready and resilient, the Contra Costa County Office of Emergency Services (OES) is seeking public feedback on the 2024 Local Hazard Mitigation Plan (LHMP).  This plan guides the county in becoming more resilient to the impacts of natural, human-caused, and technological hazards.

In the 2024 update, Contra Costa County worked with over 40 participating agencies.  As part of the planning process, they are seeking your feedback!  Please note that your area might be covered by multiple plans as some cities and special districts share areas.

Invested residents have until MAY 31 to view and provide comments on the Plan before it is submitted to the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) for review.

As a special district, West County Wastewater (WCW) is participating as an Annex to the LHMP for the first time.
