NOAA's Risk and Vulnerability Assessment Tool (RVAT)
Entry ID: NOAA_RVAT
[ Get Service ]
[ Update this Record ]


Summary
Abstract: NOAA's Risk and Vulnerability Assessment Tool (RVAT) is an interactive online
tool that helps identify people, property, and resources that are at risk of
injury, damage, or loss from hazardous incidents or natural hazards. This
information is important to help determine and prioritize the precautionary
measures that can make a community more disaster-resistant.

* Risk and Vulnerability Assessment - learn how to use the Community
Vulnerability Assessment Tool (CVAT), an easy-to-use, adaptable, multi-step
process that includes the following analyses: Hazard Identification; Critical
Facilities, Societal, Economic, and Environmental Vulnerability; and Mitigation
Opportunities

* Interactive Mapping - analyze data to determine the locations of
vulnerable people, property, and natural resources within Brevard and Volusia
Counties

* Community Rating System - review activities for increasing flood
protection and reducing flood risk and insurance premiums

* Storm Surge Visualization - view 3-D storm surge animations depicting
projected inundation due to flooding from hurricanes and tropical storms
