The City of Visalia is one of 11 jurisdictions participating with the Tulare County Office of Emergency Services (OES) as part of a Multi-Jurisdictional Local Hazard Mitigation Plan. A hazard mitigation plan is a formal document that outlays the plans to reduce or eliminate the long-term risk to human life and property from natural or man-made hazards. The plan has been designed to meet four goals; (1) significantly reduce life loss and injuries, (2) minimize damage to structures and property, as well as disruption of essential services and human activities, (3) protect the environment, and (4) promote hazard mitigation as an integrated public policy.

The plan will be updated every five years through Annual Review Questionnaires, Mitigation Project Progress Reports and Annual Meeting.
