Critical Infrastructure

Secure the Nations Critical Infrastructure using the following programs:
The Governor’s Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Preparedness (GOHSEP) annually conducts a Threat and Hazard Identification and Risk Assessment (THIRA). The THIRA identifies and analyzes the threats and hazards that face a jurisdiction (in this case the State of Louisiana) and estimates their impacts on the 31 Core Capabilities created by the National Preparedness Goal. Capability Targets are then created in order mitigate or minimize those impacts and allow for the accomplishment of the Core Capabilities. Upon completion of the THIRA, resources needed to meet the Capability Targets are identified through a Capability Estimation process. Finally, a State Preparedness Report (SPR) is prepared to determine where the State is in relation to where is wants to be in regards to the Capability Targets.



This powerful analysis tool uses the protection and resilience data from completed surveys and assessments to enhance steady state, special event, and domestic incident support capabilities. It enables users to make predictions regarding the impact of various emergencies, and prioritize their planning, protection, response, and recovery efforts.  GOHSEP provides access to the system on a need to know basis screened by the IP Gateway administrator.  Prerequisite is PCII.
