Hazard Vulnerability Analysis Template
This pediatric HVA template was developed as a part of the Eastern Great Lakes Pediatric Consortium for Disaster Response, funded by HHS ASPR. It is a method of determining hazards’ impacts on a region and how prepared regions and/or hospitals are for the pediatric consequences of each hazard. The tool categorizes hazard impact along three dimensions, each with specific pediatric considerations. By assigning hazard impact, hazard likelihood, and regional/ hospital preparedness scored, the pediatric HVA template will produce an overall vulnerability and risk score for each hazard. This tool is not meant to be a thorough checklist of preparation, but instead spur the inclusion of general pediatric considerations into risk analysis, disaster planning, and emergency response. It is not intended to replace a hospital HVA with facility-specific processes.
