The California Emergency Management Agency makes no representation or warranties regarding the accuracy of data or maps. This hazard profile is not a legal document and does not meet disclosure requirements for real estate transactions or for any other regulatory purpose. Many agencies update their maps frequently and this map service may not have the most recent data available. Please contact the agencies responsible for the regulatory maps at the links provided or contact a natural hazard disclosure firm to verify hazard zone determinations. Other hazard zone determinations may be locally mandated; check with your city or county offices for more information. Address matching is done through the process of geocoding which by its nature does not provide an exact location match. Click here for more information about geocoding.
Note: It is important to understand that being in a hazard zone does not always mean high risk; mitigation activities may have been completed that reduce risk (for instance elevation of a home in a flood zone). Not being within a regulatory hazard zone does not guarantee safety (unmapped or undiscovered faults are an example). In addition, not all areas of the state have been mapped for all hazards so the hazard level may not be known in some cases. It is advisable to be prepared for emergencies regardless of your location (See Maria Shriver's Be Smart. Be Responsible. Be Prepared. website).
