FEMA defines Hazard Mitigation as any action taken to reduce or eliminate the long-term risk to human life and property from natural hazards. Hazard mitigation planning is a process for state and local governments to identify community-level policies and actions to mitigate and thus reduce the impacts of natural hazards.

Madera County is partnering with the cities of Chowchilla and Madera and several special districts to update their 2011 Local Hazard Mitigation Plan (LHMP). Flood, drought, earthquake, and wildfire are just a few of the hazards to the Madera communities. While natural hazards such as these cannot be prevented, an LHMP forms the foundation for a community's long-term strategy to reduce disaster losses by breaking the repeated cycle of disaster damage and reconstruction. Communities with a FEMA- approved LHMP are eligible for FEMA pre- and post-disaster grant funding and are better positioned to respond and recover when disasters occur.
