Integrated Risk Management (IRM) is a process to fuse, unify, and inform the Homeland Security Enterprise. Taking a risk-based approach, assessing our capabilities, and identifying our gaps, is instrumental in our ability to shape emergency management and homeland security strategic planning and policy-making process.
IRM is based on the premise that emergency management and homeland security (EMHS) partners are most effective when their efforts are unified. IRM is a structured process, coordinated by Franklin County Emergency Management and Homeland Security (FCEM&HS), to help ensure Decision-makers are informed about risks impacting Franklin County and fully integrated into the strategic planning process for managing those risks. The IRM process includes informing Decision-makers on the risks, capabilities, and gaps in Franklin County, engaging them in discussion about possible courses of action and the pros and cons in managing these risks and determining how to work as an integrated team to reduce our gaps.
