MGT310 - Jurisdictional Threat and Hazard Identification and Risk Assessment (J-THIRA)
Date & Times
Oct 16 - 17, 2019 from 8 AM - 5 PM

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. At the conclusion of the course, participants will be able to: - 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. Jurisdictional Threat and Hazard Identification and Risk Assessment was formally titled Threat and Risk Assessment.

Prerequisites: Completion of the online courses IS-700.a: National Incident Management System (NIMS), An Introduction and AWR-160-W: WMD/Terrorism Awareness for Emergency Responders are recommended, but not required.
