Hazard-Resistance (or Disaster-Resistance, or Resistance)

A jurisdiction is hazard resistant if it has high one-or-more hazards risk and the 2018 or later IBC and IRC apply within the jurisdiction without the weakening of any provisions related to any of the hazards for which the jurisdiction has high risk, and the jurisdiction participates in the NFIP in good standing if it has high flood risk.
