Risk Assessment


In accordance with FEMA requirements, risk assessment planning process identifies the natural hazards affecting the City of Chino and assesses the vulnerability from the identified hazards.  Results from this phase in the planning process will form the foundation for the subsequent mitigation actions for reducing risk and potential losses in the City.

Hazard Identification

The risk assessment begins with the identification of hazards which could potentially affect the City.  During the plan update process we re-establish information about prevalent natural hazards and prepare a preliminary list of hazards based upon the City’s FY2011-2012 LHMP, stakeholder input, and other documentation.  The preliminary hazard list of for LHMP Update includes:Fault probabilities map

  • Earthquake
  • Flooding
  • Hazardous Materials Spill
  • Civil Unrest
  • Terrorism
  • Air/Truck Crash
  • Wildland Fire

Hazard Profiling

The LHMP Planning Committee worked with the City departments and other jurisdictions to re-establish profiles for the FY2016-2017 Hazard Mitigation Plan.  Hazard profiles provide a standardized method to explain each hazard in terms of:

  • Definition
  • Regulations / Policies
  • Location/Extent
  • Magnitude/Severity
  • Probability of Future Occurrences

During the hazard profiling process we review and assess existing plans, studies, other technical reports, and create hazard maps with newly acquired data and share them with stakeholders and the public to determine if the hazards identified are still valid.  The project management team will update the hazard profiles to reflect any new hazard events since FY2011-2012 and provide information in a FEMA preferred / required hazard profile format.
