Hazard Mitigation
A partnership of local governments and regional stakeholders in King County is working together to update the King County Regional Hazard Mitigation Plan. The purpose of this plan is to help local governments reduce the exposure of County residents to risks from natural hazards, such as earthquakes and floods. By writing this plan, local governments are able to apply to Federal programs that may provide money that can be used to reduce risks before and after natural disasters. This plan was first created in 2004 and was updated in 2009.

The City of Lake Forest Park needs your help to plan for the possibility of future disasters. We would like to find projects that will help reduce or avoid impacts from natural hazard events. The following questions will help us measure how much local citizens already know about disaster related issues and will help us identify areas where we need to improve. The information you provide will help us organize activities and prioritize projects to reduce the risk of injury or damage to property from future hazard events.

The survey consists of three questions, and there is an opportunity to provide additional comments at the end. It should take less than 10 minutes to complete the survey. When you have finished the survey, please click "Done" on the final page.

The Survey is now complete.  Thank you for your input.  The Lake Forest Park Emergency Management team thanks you for taking the time to participate in this important information gathering process.


Hazard Mitigation Plan

The draft Lake Forest Park Hazard Mitigation Plan is now available for review and comment by the community. A partnership of local governments and regional stakeholders in King County is working together to update the King County Regional Hazard Mitigation Plan. The purpose of this plan is to help local governments reduce the exposure of residents to risks from natural hazards, such as earthquakes and floods. This plan was first created in 2004 and was updated in 2009. The Federal law provides that these plans be updated every five years.

A Hazard Mitigation Plan is prepared by local governments in response to the Disaster Mitigation Act of 2000 (Public Law 106-390). These plans allow access to federal funding afforded under the Robert T. Stafford Act. These plans meet statutory requirements that include:

• Organizing resources
• Assessing risk
• Engaging the public
• Identifying goals and objectives
• Identifying actions
• Developing plan maintenance and implementation strategies

The draft plan will be posted on the City’s website for four weeks until February 20, 2015. Comments on the draft plan should directed to Chief Steve Sutton at or 206-364-8216.
