A Hazard, Risk, and Vulnerability Analysis (HRVA) is a critical part of every emergency program and is a requirement mandated by the Local Authority Emergency Management Regulation of the Emergency Program Act.  Since the current Emergency Preparedness Plan was written in 2003 and updated in 2011 there have been significant changes in agencies, best practices, and terminology. 

An HRVA is established by the systematic use of information to identify hazards and to estimate the chance for and severity of, injury or loss to individuals or populations, property, the environment, and other things of value.

Historical information provided by members of the community plays a key role in identifying the hazards and risks of the many different areas in our region. If you are part of a community group that has valuable information that would benefit the HRVA process, please contact protective.services@rdbn.bc.ca.
