The New Jersey Office of Homeland Security and Preparedness will sponsor a two-day training course titled, “Jurisdictional Threat, Hazard Identification, and Risk Assessment” (MGT-310). The Texas Engineering Extension Service, a member of the National Domestic Preparedness Consortium, will deliver the course.
COST: There is no cost to attend this workshop.
This course will prepare participants to conduct a Jurisdictional Threat and Hazard Identification and Risk Assessment (THIRA). Participants will identify threats and hazards of jurisdictional concern, give those threats and hazards context, establish capability targets, and determine how to apply the THIRA results. By using the THIRA process, stakeholders will develop a strategy to allocate resources and establish mitigation and preparedness activities. THIRA-informed planning is consistent with and expands on nationally accepted emergency management standards as the basis for planning across the mission areas of prevention, protection, mitigation, response, and recovery.
This course is for participants interested in obtaining the Infrastructure Protection Master Certificate. The certificate is for professionals who wish to enrich their personal knowledge and skills related to critical infrastructure security and resilience. Participants can request to receive a Master Certificate once all four courses (AWR-213, MGT-310, MGT-315, and MGT-414) are completed.
