DISASTER MANAGEMENT AREAS

DMA_Thumbnail

This dataset represents Disaster Management Areas within the Los Angeles County Operational Area.

Los Angeles County serves as the intermediate level of government that coordinates and communicates disaster response needs between the eighty-eight (88) cities within its geographic boundaries and the State of California. The County is divided into eight Disaster Management Areas (A, B, C, D, E, F, G, and H) with each city belonging to one of them. Each Disaster Management Area is overseen by a Disaster Management Area Coordinator.

The Disaster Management Area boundaries follow city boundaries, with the exception of a small portion of Area C. In the northern part of Area C, a small section of the boundary follows the Angeles National Forest boundary and another section of the boundary above Altadena and Kinneloa Mesa follows features of the landscape, such as canyons, drainage, and trails.
