The Town of Lyons is inviting proposals to develop a Hazard Identification and Risk Assessment (HIRA) for the Town. The Town was recently awarded a grant through the Community Development Block Grant – Disaster Recovery, Resilience Planning Grant Program funds, managed by the State of Colorado Department of Local Affairs (DOLA). The HIRA work will involve completion of background and technical data collection and analysis regarding hazards, coordination with Town staff and other local stakeholders to develop a HIRA that is compliant with Federal Emergency Management Agency’s HIRA requirements, the Colorado Division of Homeland Security and Emergency Management and DOLA’s grant requirements.
The resulting HIRA must be a clear, integrated, and action‐oriented document which will enable the Town organization and Lyons residents to understand areas of vulnerability to hazards and identify actions which can be taken to reduce the local risk from potential hazards. The HIRA shall identify and provide detailed data regarding hazards; inventory assets; analyze risks (potential impacts and estimated losses of each hazard); and assess the Town’s overall vulnerability to hazards. The HIRA is intended to be a new resource, developed in accordance with the Disaster Mitigation Act of 2000 and specific to the Town. The HIRA will provide the groundwork for establishing goals and policies for hazard mitigation.
