    Risk and Vulnerability Assessments for Rural Communities
    Tuesday, October 25, 2011

    MGT 338 Risk and Vulnerability Assessments for Ru-ral Communities is an eight-hour training program de-signed to educate participants on the need for and ba-sic components of a comprehensive risk and vulner-ability assessment that brings together stakeholders from both the public and private sector. Risk and vul-nerability assessments are particularly important in rural communities because of the lack of overlapping resources and redundant systems, as well as the stra-tegic role that nontraditional facilities and assets play in the overall infrastructure of the community. As an initial step to creating resiliency against disaster, rural communities should begin with a comprehensive risk and vulnerability assessment. This tuition free course will expose participants to the benefits of evaluating a community’s susceptibility to potential hazards and of identifying strategies for mitigating the risk of serious consequences.

    Topics covered include but are not limited to:

    Formation and composition of an RVA team to conduct the assessment.
    Role of the private sector in a compre-hensive RVA.
    Formula for determining economic im-pacts of the loss of key assets and criti-cal infrastructure.
    Multi-jurisdictional risk assessments.
