MGT310 - Jurisdictional Threat and Hazard Identification and Risk Assessment (J-THIRA)
Date & Times
Sep 22 - 23, 2021 from 8 AM - 5 PM

This course introduces the six-step THIRA/SPR process which includes identifying threats and hazards that stress a community's capabilities, giving context to those threats and hazards and identifying associated impacts consistent with specific factors, identifying community-specific capability targets, assessing current levels of capability in comparison to those targets, identifying capability gaps and subsequent strategies to close those gaps using the POETE (Planning, Organization, Equipment, Training, and Exercises) areas, and assessing and describing the impact of funding sources on building or sustaining capabilities in a community.

The course will assist local emergency responders and stakeholders to generate actionable preparedness data that communities can use to support a variety of emergency management efforts, including planning, training, exercises, and incident response and recovery.

Course Objectives
-Summarize the Threat and Hazard Identification and Risk Assessment (THIRA) and Stakeholder Preparedness Review (SPR) process.
-Identify specific hazards related to the community by applying principles and concepts related to threat and hazard groups, sources of hazard information, and the factors to consider for threat and hazard selection.
-Write threat and hazard context descriptions and estimate impacts of the threats and hazards.
-Develop core capability target statements which describe the level of capability a community plans to achieve for each of the 32 core capabilities.
-Assess current capability levels and how community capabilities have changed over the last year.
-Determine capability gaps and a subsequent approaches for addressing gaps and sustainment needs using the POETE (Planning, Organization, Equipment, Training, and Exercises) Model.
-Assess the extent to which relevant funding sources played a role in building and sustaining the capabilities assessed by the capability targets and describe the impact capabilities built or sustained by FEMA preparedness or mitigation grants had in real-world incidents over the past year.
-Produce a sample THIRA and SPR past year.
