City of Roseville Multi-Hazard Mitigation Survey
In order to identify and plan for future disasters, public input was collected to determine the level of knowledge local citizens already have about potential disasters, and to find out about areas vulnerable to various types of disasters. The information you provide will help the City coordinate activities to reduce the risk of injury or property damage in the future. The survey can be found here.

2010 Multi-Hazard Mitigation Plan Update
The federal Disaster Mitigation Act of 2000 (DMA2000) requires all local agencies in the country to adopt a federally approved Multi-Hazard Mitigation Plan in order to receive post-disaster mitigation funds. The DMA emphasizes planning for disasters before they occur. The Plan must inventory potential natural hazards that the City is most vulnerable to, assess the risk to Roseville's citizens, buildings and critical facilities, and develop a mitigation plan to reduce the City's risk and allow a swift and organized recovery should a disaster occur.

Roseville's plan is unique in that the City included an analysis of human-caused hazards that was not required by the pre-September 11th federal legislation. The City also followed the a script prescribed by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) Community Rating System (CRS) so that Roseville could meet CRS classification prerequisites, clearing the way for the City to become the first Class 1 community in the nation. The City of Roseville became the highest-rated community in the nation for flood mitigation in October 2007 based on meeting and exceeding the criteria established by FEMA. This resulted in a forty-five percent (45%) reduction in flood insurance premiums for property owners within designated floodplains in the City. The City of Roseville received recertification as the only Class 1 community in the country in October 2009.

The Disaster Mitigation Act requires that the Plan be updated every five years. The Roseville City Council must adopt the Roseville Multi-Hazard Mitigation Plan Update before the end of July 2010.

A Multi-Hazard Mitigation Steering Committee will meet from August 2009 to June 2010 to prepare the Plan Update.
