HLS300 Homeland Security Discussion

Each community faces multi-hazards. Conducting a hazard identification and risk assessment assists in writing an Emergency Operations Plan with hazard specific annexes. Use the FEMA resource below to identify a hazard that presents an imminent danger to your community. Discuss the following basic components of a risk assessment in your initial post:

  1. Hazard identification;
  2. Profile of hazard events;
  3. Inventory of assets; and
  4. Estimation of potential human and economic losses based on the exposure and vulnerability of people, buildings, and infrastructure.
