Track Your Community’s Threats With FEMA’s National Risk Index

November 23, 2020 Leave a comment DRI Admin

Want to analyze the hazards most likely to impact your business and region so you can better prepare? FEMA has introduced a new, searchable online tool to help.

The National Risk Index, currently in phase one of a continuing rollout, is designed to highlight locations most at risk from natural disasters. The mapping application analyzes risk factors from 18 hazards, and includes additional details compiled from 55 state, local, tribal, and territorial partners in the public and private sectors, such as:

  • Expected annual losses, based on hazard frequency, exposure, and historic loss rate
  • Social vulnerability, measured via the susceptibility of impacted social groups, and
  • Community resilience, based on the ability of a region to recover from the impacts of natural disasters.

Data from the site is available for download, and a comprehensive application is expected for release in 2021.
