Threat and Hazard Identification and Risk Assessment. Updated July 2019


FEMA Releases 2019 National Threat and Hazard Identification and Risk Assessment

The Federal Emergency Management Agency today released the latest National Threat and Hazard Identification and Risk Assessment (THIRA). The National THIRA is the process through which FEMA identifies catastrophic threats and hazards, the consequences of those threats and hazards, and the capabilities the nation needs to address those hazards.

The 2019 National Threat and Hazard Identification and Risk Assessment (THIRA): Overview and Methodology is available on FEMA’s website at https://www.fema.gov/national-risk-and-capability-assessment. The document outlines FEMA’s approach to that process, which uses the same standardized impact and target language that states, tribes, territories and members of the Urban Area Security Initiative grant program use for their THIRAs. For more information on the community THIRA, stakeholders are encouraged to consult the Comprehensive Preparedness Guide 201, 3rd edition, which outlines the steps in this standardized approach.

FEMA designed the THIRA methodology to support collaboration between state and local governments, federal agencies, and other emergency management entities. Because the National THIRA process described in this document uses the same language as the community THIRA, FEMA and federal departments and agencies will be able to compare state, tribal, territorial, urban area and—eventually—federal and national preparedness estimates against the national-level assessment. This common assessment will allow FEMA and other federal agencies to track progress over time and provide concrete answers in specific, measurable terms to the question: “How prepared is the nation?”

U.S. EPA honors Berkeley teacher with environmental education award
  
SAN FRANCISCO — The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency today announced that Jacqueline Omania, a teacher at Oxford Elementary School in Berkeley, Calif., is one of 11 winners to receive the Presidential Innovation Award for Environmental Educators (PIAEE). The PIAEE awards recognize innovative educators who bring environmental education into their classrooms through hands-on, experiential approaches.

“Ms. Omania’s dedication to her students has rippled throughout the community as her students reach out to their peers and families to share what they have learned,” said EPA Pacific Southwest Regional Administrator Mike Stoker. “She has gone above and beyond in her teaching career to better her student’s understanding of our natural world and conservation of its precious resources.”

Ms. Omania has helped her students think critically about how they generate waste in their daily lives and ways to reduce it. She created the Plastic-Free Planet curriculum and leads an Heirs to Our Oceans chapter for students that meets weekly during lunch and provides a space for students to connect, practice public speaking and plan action projects both at school and in the greater community.

“I am so honored to receive this award. I dedicate it to my students who inspire me daily with their persistence and passion to work together to solve the complex environmental challenges of our times,” said 3rd grade Oxford Elementary School teacher Jacqueline Omania.

After learning about the ways landfill waste affects our environment, Ms. Omania’s class decided to challenge themselves to adopt a zero-waste classroom philosophy. After changing many personal habits and classroom practices, the students were able to reduce the waste they generated during the school year to one quart-sized jar. These efforts saved nearly two dumpsters’ worth of landfill waste and more than 4,000 disposable plastic utensils. Her class was also involved in helping the City of Berkeley pass its Disposable-Free Dining Ordinance by collecting signatures and speaking at various venues about the problems of plastic pollution and their vision of a zero-waste city.

Two teachers in EPA’s Pacific Southwest Region received an honorable mention in this year’s awards:  Kelly Porter of Edison High School in Huntington Beach, Calif., and Rachna Nath of Arizona College Preparatory’s Erie Campus in Chandler, Ariz.

From across the country, 19 educators and 200 students were recognized for their remarkable efforts that promote environmental education and stewardship. Eleven educators received the Presidential Innovation Award for Environmental Educators, and eight educators were recognized with an honorable mention distinction. Additionally, the 200 student award recipients – who worked as a team or individually on 17 projects – received the President’s Environmental Youth Award.  Altogether, EPA received 162 project applications from 26 states.

Established by the 1990 National Environmental Education Act, PIAEE supports, encourages and nationally honors outstanding kindergarten through high school educators who integrate environmental and place-based, experiential learning into school curricula and school facility management across the country. Under the act, the White House CEQ assists EPA in administering the awards program.

The PIAEE program seeks to recognize, support and bring public attention to the outstanding environmental projects performed by these innovative teachers who go beyond textbook instruction to incorporate methods and materials that utilize creative experiences and enrich student learning. The program recognizes up to 20 elementary and secondary (K-12) education teachers, school administrators, and their local education agencies and provides funding to help support those educators in their environmental education work.

Next Generation making a difference. Students Receive Environmental Youth Award July 2019

The Next Generation are making a difference.

BEMA International


FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
July 25, 2019
Southern California students honored with President’s Environmental Youth Award
LOS ANGELES — The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has awarded the President’s Environmental Youth Award (PEYA) to a student project led by Lila Copeland, 17, of Ocean Preparatory High School in Los Angeles.  The award, one of 17 given nationwide to projects involving 200 students, honors exceptional contributions to environmental education and stewardship.
“This project has made a real difference and benefitted students across Los Angeles County,” said EPA Pacific Southwest Regional Administrator Mike Stoker.  “We are honored to recognize the next generation of environmental stewards who will help create a more sustainable future.”

At the age of 10, Lila founded Earth Peace, a nonprofit organization in California, which in 2015 launched the Healthy Freedom Campaign to add a fully plant-based lunch option at Los Angeles public schools every day of the school year.  In 2017, the board of the Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD) – the nation’s second largest public-school district – ratified a resolution based on the campaign and launched a pilot plant-based menu option in seven schools.  Participation in the program was reported to reach as high as 51% on days when a preferred plant-based meal option was served.  Today the program has expanded to more than 80 schools.

 

https://us.vocuspr.com/Publish/518041/vcsPRAsset_518041_116739_54ade9a6-617c-4ec0-abe0-c7867a559136_0.jpg
Lila Copeland, 17, was awarded the 2018 Presidential Environmental Youth Award.
​“Making a change to plant-based foods in our diets is one of the most impactful things we can do to protect the environment for future generations,” says Healthy Freedom Campaign director Lila Copeland.  “Every student can make this positive change right where they are.”

Also receiving awards with Lila are team members Zion Flores, Felix Hemstreet, Kohana Porter and Nikita Totka.  The campaign ultimately hopes to bring plant-based meal options to all California schools.

From across the country, 19 educators and 200 students were recognized for their remarkable efforts that promote environmental education and stewardship.  Eleven educators received the Presidential Innovation Award for Environmental Educators, and eight educators were recognized with an honorable mention distinction.  Additionally, the 200 student award recipients – who worked as a team or individually on 17 projects – received the President’s Environmental Youth Award.  Altogether, EPA received 162 project applications from 26 states.


Established by the 1990 National Environmental Education Act, the PEYA program promotes local environmental awareness among our nation’s youth and encourages positive community involvement.  EPA Headquarters works with staff located in EPA’s 10 regional offices in the selection of award recipients across the country.
