Communicating Risk: The Impact-based Forecast and Warning Services Approach

Communicating Risk: The Impact-based Forecast and Warning Services Approach
This online lesson introduces learners to the Impact-Based Forecast and Warning Services approach to managing risk from weather events. After reviewing the steps of the approach, learners will practice using them in two simulations. In the simulations, learners must determine the likelihood and potential severity of weather hazards associated with an approaching storm. Then they must create a message describing the potential risk and impacts from the storm's most prominent hazards.
