The 2013 State of Arizona Hazard Mitigation systematically broaches each potential hazard category beginning with the history of previous occurrences in Arizona. Alongside initial hazards potential secondary or cascading effects unit of measurement taken into thought. With each hazard, the probability and magnitude unit of measurement calculated.
