As we learned after reading the Comprehensive Preparedness Guide (CPG201): “Threat and Hazard Identification and Risk Assessment (THIRA)”, evaluating a community’s capability to withstand a major event or incident can be estimated by completing the following four step process:
- Identify the Threats and Hazards of Concern. Based on a combination of experience, forecasting, subject matter expertise, and other available resources, identify a list of the threats and hazards of primary concern to the community.
- Give the Threats and Hazards Context. Describe the threats and hazards of concern, showing how they may affect the community.
- Establish Capability Targets. Assess each threat and hazard in context to develop a specific capability target for each core capability identified in the National Preparedness Goal. The capability target defines success for the capability.
- Apply the Results. For each core capability, estimate the resources required to achieve the capability targets through the use of community assets and mutual aid, while also considering preparedness activities, including mitigation opportunities.
Using the linked Threat and Hazard Identification and Risk Assessment (THIRA) Form download, identify and discuss the five (5) unique hazards that identified in Weeks 1 & 2. Use your best estimate based on the instructions located from Page 5 to 18 of the Comprehensive Preparedness Guide (CPG201): Threat and Hazard Identification and Risk Assessment download.
Be certain that you use the linked THIRA form above to complete this assignment. Here is a completed SAMPLE THIRA FORM download to assist you in completing this assignment.
