Become Ready to Respond: Futureproofing your Public Housing Facility, Part I: Identify your Climate Risks and Vulnerabilities (slides)
Public Housing facilities face unique challenges during emergency events. Unable to easily relocate extremely vulnerable residents and stewarding vulnerable assets, public housing authorities depend on the continuous operation of their buildings and a rapid return to service after any disaster event. Please join Housing Urban Development and Enterprise Community Partners on a two part webinar to learn about creating a climate-smart and emergency ready housing using tools developed by Enterprise and HUD.
This session is Part I: Identify your Climate Risks and Vulnerabilities.
Post disaster recovery is most effective when a PHA has a plan in place which identifies risk and sets up systems to manage impacts from risks accordingly. Certain disasters are specific to climate risk and others the result of human-made events—all disasters can cause extensive property damage, injury to residents, and disruption in business continuity and vital community services. Your emergency plan should respond to the full continuum of risk. In this session you will learn about importance of emergency preparedness and where to start the planning process regarding the emergency planning, will learn about the components of a risk assessment, how to identify your risk, understand your hazard impacts and identify your vulnerabilities.
