MTC seeks comment on Bay Area disaster plan

Mark Prado

MTC and its partners have developed a draft Hazard Mitigation Plan and now seek public comment on the document. Comment will be taken until March 19. Feedback can be sent to Stephen Terrin at

Simply put, MTC and its partners have developed the draft hazard mitigation plan to reduce loss of life and property by minimizing the impact of disasters in the Bay Area.

It addresses a variety of hazards: climate change, dam failure, drought, earthquake, flood, landslide, pandemic, public safety power shutoff, tsunami and wildfire. 

The document will serve as a catalyst for dialogue on public policies needed to mitigate the potential loss of life, property damage, and environmental degradation from natural disasters, while accelerating Bay Area economic recovery from those events.
