Comprehensive Preparedness Guide
Federal Emergency Management Agency. (2018). Comprehensive Preparedness Guide (CPG) 201: Threat and Hazard Identification and Risk Assessment (THIRA) and Stakeholder Preparedness Review (SPR) Guide. (Third Edition.)
This guide provides communities with a three-step process for conducting a Threat and Hazard Identification and Risk Assessment (THIRA). While it incorporates healthcare, this guide is community-based. It builds upon previous versions of the CPG and describes a standard process for identifying community-specific threats and hazards; setting capability targets for each core capability identified in the National Preparedness Goal; and estimating resources needed to meet the capability targets. This edition also includes the three-step process for a Stakeholder Preparedness Review (SPR) (formerly State Preparedness Report), as this process is interconnected with the THIRA process. Healthcare should be aware of the THIRA process and assure that their input is considered and that accurate numerics are used.
