- 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.
