Local Hazard Mitigation Plan

The Rodeo-Hercules Fire District is proud to be a part of the 2024 Hazard Mitigation Plan implemented by Contra Costa County. The Hazard Mitigation Plan identifies the County’s known natural and human caused disaster risks. It provides a plan for departments, special districts, stakeholders, and the community to decrease risk and loss through various mitigation efforts. The Plan creates the framework for risk-based decision making to reduce loss of life and injuries as well as lessen damage to property and the economy from future disasters.

As a participating agency in the plan, we have created a document that seeks to identify District-specific hazards, impacts, and vulnerabilities to ensure that the countywide planning effort is inclusive of the District’s specific risks and concerns and capabilities. Additionally, specific district mitigation actions inform the overall strategy of the County to mitigate risk and identify potential mitigation funding efforts. Please see the document here:
