Yakima County has experienced several natural and human-caused disasters in recent years – landslides, flooding, smoke from wildfires, and of course the COVID-19 pandemic.

Every five years, Yakima County and local cities update our Hazard Mitigation Plan to identify the greatest threats and hazards facing our community, and how we can best mitigate the impacts. Hazard Mitigation is any effort to reduce or eliminate the long-term risk to human life and property.

Residents and community stakeholders are invited to provide your feedback on the final draft of the Hazard Mitigation Plan. Community members help to shape our strategy for mitigation and ensure thoughtful investments and projects.

Join the project team for our final public meeting on Wednesday, October 5 at 4:00pm as we review the final plan and provide your feedback! Participation is open to members of the public virtually through a Microsoft Teams webinar.
