The Florida Public Health Risk Assessment Tool – The FPHRAT captures information in a residual risk matrix that produces a risk, capability and resources gap analysis for each hazard by county. Access is managed to allow county planner(s) to rank capability functions, resources, and hazards. This tool requires a login password to protect the integrity of the data.
Florida ESF8 Planning Map - provides the user with the ability to map the areas potentially affected by incidents impacting Florida, as well as health care facilities, population densities and sites of interest to ESF8. The information provided by this tool will aid ESF8 and other planners to properly plan for the provision of alternative services and services sites, shelter-in-place scenarios, or evacuations. Select the data icon on the map toolbar to activate the Hazard Vulnerability Data Explorer, and to access information regarding social vulnerability index (SoVI), medical vulnerability index (MedVI), all-hazard vulnerability index (HazVI), jurisdictional risk assessment and resilience (FPHRAT). This tool does not require a login password.
Public Health and Medical Hazard and Vulnerability Analysis Tool – assists environmental and public health planners to identify and systematically document public health vulnerability characteristics associated with hazards and their phases of an event. The application allows users to view, identify, analyze and report detailed information from various sources. Users can view information about the following: FDOH Environmental Health programs; FDEP public water systems, EPA National Priority List, Brownfield areas 2007, CDC vulnerability index, FEMA flood zones, FDEM surge zones, and FDEM critical facilities. This tool does not require a login password.
Florida Medical, Social and All-hazards Vulnerability Report (2012) – this report includes a comprehensive assessment created utilizing the Florida Hazard Vulnerability Data Explorer (HVDE). This assessment includes maps and analytics representing social, medical and all-hazards vulnerability within the state. It also presents spatial impact of hazard variability at the sub-county, county and state level. This assessment provides information for disaster risk reduction including preparedness for response and recover, and longer-term adaptation in those most vulnerable and highly impacted areas.
