Risk is defined as the “possibility of loss or injury” and Hazard is defined as “something causing unavoidable danger, peril, risk or difficulty.”
While we can often talk about large “disaster scenarios,” it is much easier to plan when you are realistic and know what you are facing as potential causes for an emergency situation.
DAY 27 Challenge:1-3, or 5 pts Today, we want to know about the hazards that concern you most. What are the top 3 life-altering hazards that you could most likely face where you live? And more importantly, why do these hazard scenarios concern you specifically? It is one thing to say that a 7.0 magnitude earthquake will crumble a few streets on your way to work and a very different other thing to realize that the ground beneath your home may liquefy if you sit in a soil liquefaction zone.
You will receive one point for each hazard scenario that you identify and describe why you feel you are at risk to be affected from this hazard.
