Local Hazard Mitigation Plan (LHMP)

What is hazard mitigation?


  1. identifies potential hazards faced by communities where SMUD maintains assets or operations
  2. assesses the vulnerability of those assets and operations to such hazards
  3. identifies specific actions that can be taken to reduce the risk from identified hazards

The LHMP represents SMUD’s commitment to reduce and eliminate, where possible, the risks and impacts of natural and human-caused hazards. The LHMP serves to help protect SMUD’s assets, customers and communities by coordinating our broad-based disaster preparedness and resiliency efforts.
