Course Description

US FlagThis course introduces the six-step THIRA/SPR process which includes identifying threats and hazards that stress a community’s capabilities, giving context to those threats and hazards and identifying associated impacts consistent with specific factors, identifying community-specific capability targets, assessing current levels of capability in comparison to those targets, identifying capability gaps and subsequent strategies to close those gaps using the POETE (Planning, Organization, Equipment, Training, and Exercises) areas, and assessing and describing the impact of funding sources on building or sustaining capabilities in a community.

Successful completion of the course will assist local emergency management efforts and stakeholders in generating actionable preparedness data that communities can use to support a variety of emergency management efforts, including planning, training, exercises, and incident response and recovery. THIRA/SPR-informed planning is consistent with, and expands on, nationally accepted emergency management standards as the basis for planning across the mission areas of prevention, protection, mitigation, response, and recovery.

Individuals completing this course in combination with AWR213, MGT315, MGT414, and MGT452, are awarded the TEEX Infrastructure Protection Certificate.

This course meets Texas Commission on Law Enforcement (TCOLE) requirements for MGT310 JTHIRA course #78406.

Upon successful completion, you will be able to:

  • Summarize the Threat and Hazard Identification and Risk Assessment (THIRA) and Stakeholder Preparedness Review (SPR) process, the Federal guidelines and the benefits of conducting a community-based THIRA/SPR.
  • Identify specific threat and hazards to the community by applying principles and concepts related to threat and hazard identification groups, and the factors to consider for threat and hazard groups.
  • Write a context statement based on the completion of an impact worksheet that will identify the threat and hazard that most challenge a single core capability.
  • Develop core capability target statements which describe the level of capability a community plans to achieve for each of the 32 core capabilities.
  • Assess current capability levels and how community capabilities have changed over the last year.
  • Articulate capability gaps and a subsequent approach for addressing gaps and sustainment needs using the POETE (Planning, Organization, Equipment, Training, and Exercises) Solution Cycle.
  • Articulate an understanding of the federal funding sources and programs that might assist in addressing the identified gaps, and how previous funding sources impacted the community’s ability to address capability gaps and sustainment needs.
