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.
