Risk Assessment / THIRA
What threats and hazards do YOU face?
Before you can draft an emergency response plan or emergency training exercise, it is important to under the risks, threats, and hazards that your organization faces. One way to quantitatively score these risks is through the development of a Threats and Hazards Identification and Risk Assessment (THIRA). A THIRA can help guide your planning process, priority setting, and development of capabilities. As such, a THIRA is often the first step in a well-planned emergency preparedness program.
What's the difference between a "threat" and a "hazard"?
A "threat" is generally defined as any risks that are man-caused (including but not limited to: active shooter, bomb threats, cyber attacks, sabotage, etc.)
A "hazard" is generally defined as any risks that are nature-caused (including but not limited to: severe storms, droughts, floods, etc.)
How does it work?
Our team will conduct a series of interviews with various stakeholders in your organization and community (as applicable). Depending on your unique situation, a THIRA workshop may be recommended with key stakeholders in the organization and/or community. In addition, we will thoroughly research your organization, industry, community, and region using a variety of sources and resources. This can all be done virtually or on-site.
After we are confident in the background research for your THIRA, you will receive a detailed document explaining each threat and hazard along with a table that uses our advanced algorithm to quantitatively score your organization on each threat and hazard for likelihood, vulnerability, consequence (human, property, and operational impacts), mitigation, and overall risk.

Prefer to do it yourself?
We also offer our THIRA template with our advanced formulas pre-loaded. Simply download the Excel file, insert your Likelihood, Vulnerability, Consequence, and Mitigation scores (scale of 1-3 on each), and the template does the rest. Risk scores for all threats and hazards will automatically be calculated and comparison charts will auto-generate as well.
