To develop a risk profile you should work with the Hazard Risk Assessment (HRA) tool and identify which hazards pose the greatest threat for your community. From the results of this assessment you will be able to produce a Hazard Risk Assessment Report that rates each hazard from a�?High Riska�? to be a major threat, to those that just couldna��t happen at all in your community.

You may also want to identify which parts or zones of your community are most at risk for a specific hazard. For example, homes on a flood plain are more likely to be affected by flooding than those built further away or at a higher elevation. You may want to refer to your community map and when you have identified which areas are most at risk, and add that information into your map. The hazards the team select through this analysis that are recorded on their Risk Profile will be the ones they will focus on throughout the remainder of the planning process. For a more detailed analysis and to complete ratings by zones, download the Disaster Risk Profile Template (available on the ‘Resources’ page).
