Community Hazard Analysis

Using the hazard analysis tools identified in the classroom, conduct a hazard analysis of your community. Based on your analysis, write a 5–10 page paper describing the high and moderate hazards you identified. Follow these steps:

Identify and characterize the hazards

Evaluate each hazard for severity and frequency

Estimate the risk

Determine the societal and economic (direct) effects and the indirect effects or costs

Determine the acceptable level of risk

Identify risk-reduction opportunities

Include the actions the local emergency management organization should take to mitigate the hazards, with a comment as to how the hazards would impact vulnerable populations and critical infrastructure if not mitigated. Be sure to include a hazard ranking. Discuss preparations that should be made in the community to safeguard lives and property in the event of a natural or man-made emergency or disaster related to the hazards.
