The goal of this course is to prepare participants to conduct a jurisdictional Threat and Hazard Identification and Risk Assessment (THIRA). Participants will focus on the jurisdictional process for determining the ability to respond to human-caused, natural, and technological disasters. Students 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, multimedia and scenarios to improve the jurisdiction’s capability to prevent, protect, mitigate, respond to, or recover from all-hazards events.

This course meets Texas Commission on Law Enforcement (TCOLE) requirements Course #78012.
