Fortifying Community Resilience: Collaborative Strategies from a Hazard Risk & Vulnerability Analysis Workshop


In 2022, a comprehensive Hazard Risk & Vulnerability Analysis (HRVA) workshop convened six key stakeholder groups to evaluate 32 potential hazards, spanning natural, technological, and human-induced origins, impacting the region. The aim was to assess risks thoroughly and develop actionable insights for effective emergency preparedness.






Emergency Management


  1. Hazard, Risk, Vulnerability Assessment (HRVA): Detailed evaluation of hazards, risks, and vulnerabilities to inform emergency planning.
  2. Emergency Response Plan (ERP): Strategic blueprint outlining response protocols and mitigation strategies tailored to identified hazards.


The workshop objectives encompassed:

  1. Identifying all hazards across jurisdictions within the Emergency Management Region.
  1. Prioritizing the most probable hazards.
  1. Assessing maximum impact and vulnerabilities.
  1. Reviewing current mitigation strategies and proposing future enhancements.
  1. Evaluating community and regional capacity for hazard response.
  1. Integrating HRVA findings into the Regional Emergency Management Plan.

PMO facilitated collaboration among stakeholders to develop realistic scenarios and an actionable HRVA, serving as the foundation for a practical regional emergency response plan. Significant effort was invested in partnering with a rural municipality, a city, a town, and five First Nations to create a unified Emergency Management Plan, inclusive of emergency social services management. Support was provided to secure approval from individual leadership entities, such as Mayors, Reeves, Councils, and Chiefs, ensuring comprehensive acceptance and implementation.
