Benchmark – Implementation Plan made hazard risks which are earthquakes, flooding, severe thunderstorms, fires, and even terrorism. Overview of the Planning Process and Hazard Analysis The planning process comes with the building of a planning committee. Once this committee has been designated, then comes the process of meeting with external agencies which are also known as stakeholders. The selection of stakeholders comes with their ability to execute certain responsibilities without any trouble. After this has been achieved comes the process of involving the rest of the community who want to voice their opinions. Once the community has expressed their concerns comes the most tedious portion of the planning process. The planning team must now employ agencies to assess the hazards that are present to the city in order to have a complete understanding of what they are dealing with currently and what they may face. Once these hazards have been evaluated properly, the next step is to set goals. These goals include the implementation of preventative measures to minimize a potential hazard from occurring as well as plans of action that have been carefully put together for each individual hazard. The final steps involve the process of reviewing the plan that has been drafted by the planning committee itself and present it to the community in order to make any final adjustments in a need-to basis. Once the plan has been completed it is ready for complete plan implementation to the community. Vulnerability Analysis A vulnerability assessment is the potential for the city to be exposed to the local hazards and the damage that comes with it. It allows for prediction of the exposure that may come due to the hazard and the strength it presents itself in.

Each hazard has their individual analysis with experts that are required to understand each hazard to the best of their abilities. The analysis that are done include the assessment of potential impacts from each hazard using all available data both past and present in order to facilitate future data. Mitigation Strategies and Assistance The mitigation strategies are a layout of the plan of action that has been developed by city officials to reduce and/or prevent any losses that accompany the hazards that have been identified within the risk assessment. The planning team has had the chance to make any corrections on an as-needed basis to the 2012 Hazard Mitigation Plan’s mitigation strategies,

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
