Hazard Mitigation & Resiliency

The City of Manitou Springs has been impacted by natural hazards in the past. The City is committed to reducing the impacts a disaster would have on its residents, visitors, and businesses. Through a Hazard Mitigation Plan and other plans, the City is working to reduce impacts from three primary natural hazards: flooding/flash flooding, geologic hazards, and wildfire. This section is provided to assist Manitou Springs residents, business owners, and visitors to be prepared for and to mitigate, or reduce, natural hazard impacts. We consider our community members to be partners in this endeavor, and encourage them to take action to reduce risk to property and community.

The City has composed two in-depth proposals to implement disaster preparedness:

  1. Hazard Mitigation Plan
  2. Hazard Mitigation Strategy


Identify your evacuation zone and route, recieve emergency notifications, and learn how to prepare to safely evacuate.


Identify your natural hazard risks, take actions to reduce natural hazard impacts, and access other mitigation resources.
