Hazard, Risk, Vulnerability Analysis
“Building a safer future through effective partnerships of local government, emergency services, private sector, and volunteer agencies and the residents of the Regional District of Bulkley-Nechako.”
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 Regional District’s 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 a process of engaging community members, hazard specialists and emergency response agencies in identifying hazards that have the likelihood to cause an emergency or disaster in our local areas. The process assesses consequences should the emergency or disaster occur. Understanding vulnerable locations, or areas at risk, helps the community to establish priorities.
Key process elements and rough timeline are illustrated below.
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 the Project contact: Liliana Dragowska, HRVA Coordinator
