SMMUSD Hazard Mitigation Planning


The Santa Monica-Malibu Unified School District is joining with Santa Monica College in a multi-jurisdictional, resources saving planning process to complete a Disaster Mitigation Plan (DMA 2000) in compliance with new Federal Regulations.

 

A Hazard Mitigation Plan is a pre-disaster plan outlining strategies and an implementation process that will lower the District’s risk and exposure to a disaster. This plan relies on information supplied by the District’s community members, students, teachers, vendors, and government agencies.

 

The School District invites you to take part in the Hazard Mitigation Planning Process by completing our Hazards Mitigation and Preparedness Questionnaire. You may access it on line at www.smmusd.org, click on District Information in the left-hand column, and then click on the box that says Hazard Mitigation Planning. If you would like a copy mailed to you, contact the Risk Management Office at 310-450-8338, ext. 310.
