Overview

In a cooperative effort with Sacramento County, Los Rios is included in the Sacramento City/County Hazard Mitigation Plan. This Plan was approved by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) in 2011 and can be viewed on the Sacramento County Water Resources website. For specific information for Los Rios go to Annex J.

The plan is based on a hazard identification and risk assessment of all the potential natural hazards that could impact Sacramento County. The plan includes recommended action items for the County and its jurisdictions to reduce their vulnerability to potential disasters. The multi-jurisdictional plan includes the County, the City of Sacramento, and the incorporated municipalities of Citrus Heights, Elk Grove, Folsom, Galt, Rancho Cordova, as well as many special districts that include but not limited to SAFCA, Reclamation, Recreation and Park, SRCSD, and Cosumnes Community Service District Fire Department.

This plan meets the requirements of the Disaster Mitigation Act of 2000 in order to maintain Sacramento’s eligibility for FEMA Pre-Disaster Mitigation and Hazard Mitigation Grant Programs. The plan also functions as the Community Rating System (CRS) Floodplain Management Plan for the County as well as the City of Sacramento.
