Risk Assessment & CERT Training

Taking CERT training is a good way to assess disaster risks for your area. For instance, at my first CERT class I learned of the following risks for the Charlottesville area:

Earthquakes
Hurricanes (most likely tropical force winds when they reach our area)
Tornadoes (worst toradoes have been F1 in the Fujita Scale)
Flooding
Severe Winter Storms (greatest risk)
Hazmat incidents (includes the North Anna Nuclear Plant Plan-90% of Albemarle County is within 50 miles of the plant)
Terrorism
