Understanding your natural hazard risks

Natural disasters cause damage that can take years to repair. Analyzing your natural hazard risks ahead of time allows you to focus your attention and resources on the biggest risks—maximizing your funding potential. Our teams can design risk models that pinpoint areas of vulnerability and help you plan for how to use federal aid effectively before and after the disaster.
