Health Hazard Assessment and Prioritization
Los Angeles County Department of Public Health, Emergency Preparedness and Response Program (2013). Health Hazard Assessment and Prioritization (hHAP).
This tool was developed by the Los Angeles Department of Public Health—in collaboration with the Orange County Health Care Agency, the Long Beach Department of Health and Human Services, and the Pasadena Department of Public Health—and provides a 6-step hazard vulnerability assessment process. It offers a health-focused mechanism to engage the community, identify organizational priorities, and improve an agency’s or community’s capability to successfully prepare for, respond to, and recover from potential emergency threats. Both the hHAP Instrument and Manual are provided as downloads.
