Hazard Mitigation Plan
Hazard Mitigation Planning is the process the government uses to identify risk and vulnerabilities associated with natural and human-caused disasters and to develop long-term strategies for protecting people and property in future hazards. The planning process results in a framework for developing feasible and cost-effective mitigation projects.
Hazard Mitigation Plans are updated every 5 years to help reduce or remove the long-term risk to people and property from the effects of a disaster. Under the Disaster Mitigation Act of 2000 (Public Law 106-390), State, Local and Tribal governments are required to develop a Hazard Mitigation Plan to be eligible for certain federal funds and disaster assistance.
They City of Tukwila adopted the King County Regional Hazard Mitigation Plan on July 20, 2020.
