Hazard Mitigation Plan 

Our 2017 Hazard Mitigation Plan is up for public review from July 10 to August 10.  The HMP is required to be updated every five years by municipalities and special districts in order to be eligible for certain federal grants pre and post disasters.  Please provide any feedback or suggestions to jramos@applevalley.org:



The Town of Apple Valley’s Office of Emergency Preparedness (OEP) supports the community by administering the National Preparedness Goal of Prevention, Protection, Mitigation, Response and Recovery.  OEP is actively coordinating the Town’s response to disasters and emergencies as well as aiding residents, businesses and visitors in preparedness for major catastrophes both natural and man-made.

OEP works with local, state and federal government partners, as well as non-governmental organizations to achieve this goal.  OEP maintains the town’s Emergency Operations Center, is an active partner with the County of San Bernardino’s Operational Area Coordinating Council and participates in regular training and exercises to test and update the town’s Emergency Operations Plan to insure a state of constant readiness. In addition the Town updates our Hazard Mitigation Plan on a 5 year cycle and is currently in the process of updating.
