Hazard Identification and Risk Assessment

The Hazard Identification and Risk Assessment process is a tool for understanding hazards and the risks they generate; and for setting priorities for planning and other emergency management activities.

Hazards fall into three categories:

  • Natural Hazards - includes events such as flooding, severe winter weather and forest fires
  • Human-caused (accidental or intentional) - includes events such as pandemics, special events and terrorism
  • Technological Hazards - include events such as a utility failure, train derailment and hazardous material spill
Sault Ste. Marie's Emergency Management Program focuses on those events that have the greatest likelihood of occurring and the greatest potential impact; ensuring wherever possible the municipality is prepared to effectively respond to those events.
