Federal Emergency Management Agency

Collection: The Full-Spectrum Risk Knowledgebase

Main Content
The Full-Spectrum Risk Knowledgebase is an initiative of the Federal Emergency Management Agency designed to support federal, state, territorial, tribal, and local government officials and key partners in considering their risks and to enhance risk-informed decision making. The Knowledgebase is a secure reference site that can be used to build all-hazards risk knowledge and provide decision support. It serves as a resource for stakeholders and empowers them to perform their own analyses by providing reference material, information, and guidance aimed at helping to further develop one's understanding of all-hazard risks. Among other information, The Knowledgebase includes descriptions of various threats and hazards, visual depictions of how hazards relate to one another (cause and consequence), information on mitigation strategies and countermeasures, examples of various incidents for added context, and information on the application of different structured analytic techniques to aid in analyses. Access to The Knowledgebase is granted to government employees throughout the United States and U.S. territories at all levels of government (civilian and military) and to non-government stakeholders (U.S. citizens only), considering the key role that all stakeholders play in addressing wide-ranging risks. Non-government stakeholders include government contractors and consultants, private sector infrastructure owners/operators, those in the non-profit sector and academia, and members of professional associations and volunteer organizations, among others.
