Area Hazards and Public Safety Maps


Different types of hazards cause different impacts, occur in different locations, and happen with varying degrees of severity. However, all have the potential to severely harm human health and safety, private and public property, ecosystems, and services. Like many other communities, Inyo County and Bishop could face substantial damage, injury or loss of life, interruptions to critical services, and other major challenges due to natural hazard impacts.

Use the Public Safety Mapping tools below to find out what hazards could impact the areas in which you live or work. Being informed is the best way to be prepared.
