How do you identify and address your vulnerabilities and risks?
The internationally respected Standard on Continuity, Emergency, and Crisis Management (NFPA 1600 / soon to become NFPA 1660) defines risk as a measure of the probability and severity of adverse effects that result from exposure to a hazard.
Drawing on these internationally respected approaches to disaster management and vulnerability assessment, the Disaster Risk Assessor App applies the key elements from the standards to your context.

We live in precarious times – we all live under “Damoclean Swords”. We are all exposed to different hazards. To different disasters. We are all differently vulnerable.
The free Disaster Risk Assessor App focuses on how we are exposed to risk through interactions between hazards and vulnerabilities. The App addresses your vulnerabilities to disasters. Drawing on internationally respected Standards for disaster management and vulnerability assessment, this App applies the standards to your context.
Risk is assessed – not as an academic exercise, but in order to better manage it. Where your risk is unacceptably high the app supports the development and implementation of effective planning – both before and after disaster impact.
