Risk assessments are a vital source of baseline information for preparedness planning. Community decisions made now affect the lives and investments of everyone in the community for decades. Therefore, it is important to collaborate with key stakeholders when using risk assessment tools to decide which hazards require attention and what actions must be planned for to protect the people, property, and environment. During this COCA Call/Webinar, learn how the Iowa Department of Public Health and the Upper Midwest Preparedness and Emergency Response Learning Center developed partnerships between health care and public health agencies to assess their community’s risk and improve their community-based planning.


At the conclusion of the session, the participant will be able to accomplish the following:

  • Discuss the importance of a risk assessment tool.
  • Describe how the risk assessment tool can be used for community-wide planning.
  • State the benefits of including community partners in risk assessment tool development and ongoing preparedness planning.
