Course Description This course is the latest in the hazardous weather series of courses produced in partnership with the National Weather Service (NWS). Every year, the United States experiences more severe weather than any other country in the world. In order to reduce deaths, injuries, and property losses, Emergency Managers must work closely with the NWS and the news media to provide effective warnings that can be received and understood by people at risk. This course is intended to help facilitate that process. Course topics include: The Social Dimensions of Warning Response; Developing Effective Warning Messages; Developing an Effective Community Warning Process; and Working with the News Media to Create a Weather Warning Partnership. In addition to lecture and discussion, the course includes case studies, exercises, and an opportunity for interaction with representatives of the local news media. Prerequisites & Other Information: • There are no Prerequisites for this course.

DESCRIPTION:
The Jurisdictional Threat Hazard Identification and Risk Assessment (THIRA) course prepares participants to conduct a jurisdictional THIRA. Participant activities focus on the jurisdictional process for determining the ability to respond to human-caused, natural, and technological disasters. Participants will identify threats and hazards of concern, give the threats and hazards context, examine the core capabilities, set capability targets, and apply the results.
Major topics include:
• Identify the major components of the Threat and Hazard Identification and Risk Assessment (THIRA) process.
• Conduct assessments to identify threats and hazards of concern.
• Construct likely risk-based scenarios based on the results of a vulnerability assessment.
• Estimate consequences for an assigned all-hazards scenario.
• Conduct post-scenario surveys to identify jurisdictional required capabilities, compare those capabilities with current capabilities to determine "shortfalls and gaps" (Gap Analysis), and create a jurisdictional strategy to reduce these "shortfalls and gaps" by completing a needs assessment.
