The following natural and human-caused hazards potentially threaten Carlsbad:
Method of identifying potential hazards
These potential hazards were identified through a hazard vulnerability analysis conducted by Carlsbad's Emergency Management and Administrative Team, which includes managers and leaders from city departments.
The analysis considered the following factors:
- What can occur (both natural and human-caused threats)
- How often that hazard is likely to occur
- How severe it might be
- How vulnerable Carlsbad is to the hazard
This analysis forms the basis for the city's emergency operations plan.
