Title: City of Damascus natural hazards mitigation plan addendum
Author: Oregon Partnership for Disaster Resilience; Clackamas County Emergency Management
Abstract: The City of Damascus developed this addendum to the Clackamas County Natural Hazards Mitigation Plan in an effort to increase the community’s resilience to natural hazards. The addendum focuses on the natural hazards that could affect Damascus, Oregon, which include flood, landslide, wildfire, severe storms, earthquake and volcano. It is impossible to predict exactly when disasters may occur, or the extent to which they will affect the city. However, with careful planning and collaboration among public agencies, private sector organizations, and citizens within the community, it is possible to minimize the losses that can result from natural hazards. The addendum provides a set of actions that aim to reduce the risks posed by natural hazards through education and outreach programs, the development of partnerships, and the implementation of preventative activities such as land use or watershed management programs. The actions described in the addendum are intended to be implemented through existing plans and programs within the city. The addendum is comprised of the following sections: 1) Planning Process; 2) Community Profile; 3) Risk Assessment; and 4) Action Items.
Description: 119 pp. References, maps, tables, figures, illus., appendices. "Prepared for City of Damascus...In cooperation with Clackamas County Emergency Management."
