The City of Issaquah partners with the community to prepare for, respond to and recover from disasters.

Catastrophes happen. Are you prepared?

Hazard Mitigation Plan Update
The City of Issaquah is partnering with King County to update the Regional Hazard Mitigation Plan (RHMP), which covers nearly 60 planning partners. The RHMP addresses each hazard, responsibilities, and related timelines. The King County RHMP is comprehensive, covering many cities, towns, and special districts - including Issaquah. 

The City develops its own risk-reduction strategies, which are then incorporated into the RHMP. Examples of strategies include raising homes in the flood plain, home earthquake retrofits, earthquake hardening of public utilities and training and awareness programs such as CERT and Map Your Neighborhood. 

The City of Issaquah faces numerous hazards including: earthquakes, winter storms, volcanoes, landslides, wildfires and floods. 

We would like your thoughts.
 
Please take a couple of minutes to share your ideas on how Issaquah should address the hazards listed above. If you have a concern, or preferred project or program you think we should pursue to reduce the communities hazard risk, please let us know.
