DescriptionThis course prepares participants to conduct a jurisdictional Threat Hazard Identification and Risk Assessment (THIRA). Participant activities focus on allowing the jurisdiction to understand threats and hazards and how the impacts may vary according to time of occurrence, season, location, and other community factors. This knowledge helps a jurisdiction establish informed and defensible capability targets. Participants will identify threats and hazards of concern, give the threats and hazards context, examine the core capabilities, set capability targets, perform vulnerability and consequence assessments, and apply the results. The course delivery combines lecture, small group discussions, participant activities, and multimedia scenarios to improve the jurisdiction’s capability to prevent, protect, mitigate, respond to, or recover from all-hazards events.

Participant Audience: Emergency response level, supervisory and/or management personnel who respond to or have oversight responsibility for incidents caused by terrorism, natural disaster, major accidents and all other hazards. Course participants include responders from the following disciplines/services: • Law Enforcement • Fire Service • Emergency Medical Services • Hazardous Materials • Public Health • Public Works • Emergency Management • Health Care • Emergency Communications • Governmental Administrative Personnel from the private sector, non-governmental organizations, schools, and the military are also allowed to attend if invited or approved by the host jurisdiction.

Prerequisites: Participants should work in one of the listed disciplines, have completed a WMD/terrorism awareness level course, or be approved by the local jurisdiction host.
