Hazard Identification & Risk Assessment
Commonwealth Regional Council
In 2022, the Berkley Group completed a Hazard Identification and Risk Assessment (“HIRA”) for the Commonwealth Regional Council. This work involved coordination with PDC staff, the Project Management Team, local stakeholders, and VDEM staff to update information regarding hazards impacting District localities, analyzing the degree to which hazards impact localities, and assessing community risk and vulnerability to hazards. Additionally, the project team addressed hazards considered by the District for the first time, including invasive species, radon, pandemic/infectious agent, and climate change.
