The Department of Homeland Security Threat and Hazard Identification and Risk Assessment (THIRA) guide provides a comprehensive approach for identifying and assessing risks and associated impacts.

The THIRA guide describes a step-by-step process:

  • Step One assesses the various threats and hazards facing a community of any size.
  • Step Two assesses the vulnerability of the community to those hazards using varying time, season, location, and community factors.
  • Steps Three and Four estimate the consequences of those threats and hazards impacting the community and, through the lens of core capabilities, establish capability targets.
  • Step Five captures the results of the THIRA process to set an informed foundation for planning and preparedness activities across prevention, protection, mitigation, response, and recovery
