Mitigation Plan - 2014 Local Hazard Mitigation Plan 
We want Berkeley to be ready for natural disasters. Community-wide participation will help to reduce a disaster’s impact. On December 16, 2014, the Berkeley City Council adopted the 2014 Local Hazard Mitigation Plan (13 MB). This is our plan to reduce our physical vulnerabilities -- before a disaster strikes. These vulnerabilities include soft-story apartments, unreinforced brick buildings and overgrown vegetation. This report has information about the disasters we may experience, what we’re doing to lessen their impacts and how you might help. To learn more about the development and community review process for the 2014 Local Hazard Mitigation Plan, visit the 2014 LHMP Development and Review Process page.
