The THIRA is a three-step risk assessment completed every three years. It helps answer the following questions:
- What threats and hazards can affect our community?
- If they occurred, what impacts would those threats and hazards have on our community?
- Based on those impacts, what capabilities should our community have?
The THIRA helps communities understand their risks and determine the level of capability they need in order to address those risks. The outputs from this process lay the foundation for determining a community’s capability gaps during the SPR process.
The State of Hawai`i Comprehensive Emergency Management Plan – Base Plan describes and establishes the
organizational framework the state will use to document and socialize the many strategic, operational, and
tactical emergency management plans, policies, and procedures that make up the State Comprehensive
Emergency Management Program.
The implementation of this plan requires collaboration and commitment from all state entities with emergency
management responsibilities. Through the execution of this document, state emergency management activities
will increase in effectivity, to the benefit of all public and private entities as well as state residents and visitors.
The Hawaii Emergency Operations Plan (HI-EOP) is an all-hazards plan that establishes the shared framework for the state’s response to, and initial recovery from emergencies and disasters. The Base Plan is supported by Annexes that outline responsibilities of state agencies and partners for emergency functions and provide additional detail on the response to specific types of issues and incidents.

The SHMP identifies the major natural hazards that affect our state, assesses the risk that each hazard poses, analyzes the vulnerability of our people, property and infrastructure to the specific hazard, and recommends actions that can be taken to reduce the risk and vulnerability to the hazard.
The plan also contains a description of programs, policy, statutes and regulations applicable to hazard mitigation.
The IPP is updated annually. It is the product of the Integrated Preparedness Planning Workshop (IPPW), which is hosted by HI-EMA and attended by stakeholders from all levels of government, the non-profit and private sectors. The IPP is informed by the input provided by this diverse group of agencies and is the roadmap for Hawaii to accomplish the priorities described within this document.
The State Plan for the Integrated Public Alerts & Warning Systems (IPAWS), Emergency Alert System (EAS), and Wireless Emergency Alerts (WEA).
