[ARCHIVED] Flooding, Severe Weather, Earthquakes: What If?

At times over the past 125 years, the City of Puyallup has experienced damage from flooding, severe weather, and earthquakes. Our Hazard Mitigation Plan serves as a blueprint for reducing risks to life and property by lessening the impact of known potential hazards.

This year, we’ve been working to update this plan prior to submitting it to the State and FEMA for their review and approval. The purpose of the plan is to identify vulnerabilities, assess their probability and potential severity, and develop ways to prevent or minimize negative effects should a disaster occur. The plan also prioritizes strategies and funding for mitigation efforts according to which ones are anticipated to have the greatest impact.

What hazards does Puyallup’s Mitigation Plan address?

  • Earthquake
  • Severe weather
  • Landslide
  • Flood
  • Volcanic eruption or lahar

Come learn about the city's Hazard Mitigation Plan and provide your input as we put the finishing touches on this year’s update. Community input is an important part of this process, and we welcome your questions and comments. The Plan is also available online.
