This page provides general information on hazard mitigation and the Hazard Mitigation Assistance (HMA) grant programs. Hazard Mitigation is any action taken to reduce or eliminate long term risk to people and property from natural disasters.

Hazard Mitigation planning is a process used by state, tribal, and local governments to identify risks. The major goal of the U.S. earthquake hazard reduction program is to reduce earthquake hazards through understanding of risks and prediction of hazards During the strain accumulation phase of the earthquake cycle.

The All Hazards Mitigation Plan contains a five-year action plan matrix, background on the purpose and methodology used to develop the mitigation plan, a profile of the City of Santa Monica, sections on six natural hazards that occur within the City, and the new Community Events and the Exposition Light Rail sections.

Analysis of the existing literature on the topic helped to point out advantages and drawbacks of each type of map, and their possible use for the assessment of the landslide hazard. Uses existing within-country capacity to reduce urban landslide hazard Identifies hazard drivers to justify interventions Community residents engaged throughout Delivers landslide hazard reduction on the ground Stresses importance of site supervision Encourages behavioural change Promotes evidence-base for landslide hazard reduction.

- programs have 5 goals: 1) improve national seismograph networks 2) develop awareness of earthquake sources 3) determine earthquake potential 4) predict effects of earthquakes on buildings 5) communicate research to educate the public. 48 Planning for Post-Disaster Recovery and Reconstruction post-disaster recovery and reconstruction, the vision statement should be clear but broad in its view of the positive consequences for the community if the plan is properly implemented.

It should provide an overall framework within which more specific policy objectives, discussed below. Flooding is the most common and costly natural hazard in the United States.
