Inyo County Multi-Jurisdictional Hazard Mitigation Plan


A Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) approved Inyo County Multi-Jurisdictional Hazard Mitigation Plan (ICMJHMP) forms the foundation for a community’s long-term strategy to reduce disaster losses and break the cycle of repeated disaster damage and subsequent reconstruction. The planning process necessary to develop the ICMJHMP is an important component to create a framework for risk-based decision making and thereby reducing damage to property and the economy from future disasters. The Disaster Mitigation Act of 2000 requires local governments to develop and submit mitigation plans for FEMA approval, as a condition of receiving Hazard Mitigation Grant Program project grants or Pre-Disaster Mitigation project grants.


Inyo County has been awarded California Governor’s Office of Emergency Services (Cal OES) Grant Number 2014-0005 to prepare a ICMJHMP, The plan needs to assess the risk from all hazards, natural and manmade, within the County and neighboring Counties, evaluate the vulnerability of structures and infrastructures to these hazards, and assist participating jurisdictions to identify and plan mitigation initiatives to address the vulnerabilities. The plan will provide a set of action items that, when implimented, can help reduce the risk from natural hazards.


The projected planning area generally corresponds to the boundaries of Inyo County. Anticipated stakeholders (multiple jurisdictions) may include, but are not limited to: the City of Bishop,.Unincorporated Communities, Special Districts, School Districts, Local Tribes, Local Hospitals, State and Federal agencies.
