DETAILS
This course is designed as an introduction to the fundamental concepts of benefit-cost analysis (BCA). Cost-effectiveness is a key criterion for determining whether or not a hazard mitigation project is eligible for funding. To assist in assessing cost-effectiveness, the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) has developed software modules and guidance for conducting BCA of proposed projects. This course applies to and is valid for all FEMA Hazard Mitigation Assistance grant programs.

Course Goals: Upon completion of this course, participants should be able to:
  • Demonstrate their knowledge of the basic Benefit Cost Analysis (BCA) theory.
  • Demonsrate their knowledge of the basic flood concepts.
  • Describe features of the BCA Tool.
  • Complete a BCA using the Flood Module.
  • Explain each screen and important data fields in the Flood Module.
  • Complete the independent case study assignment.
  • Use supplemental tools and techniques in the BCA Tool in response to different scenarios, which include: multiple structures, displacement costs calculation, loss of function calculation, benefit-cost ratio just below 1.0, types of basements.
  • Explain key Damage-Frequency Assessments (DFA) concepts.
  • Identify eligible hazards.
  • Explain the DFA Module data and documentation requirements.
  • Complete a DFA Module BCA.
  • Explain Tornado Safe Room, Hurricane Wind, Hurricane Safe Room, Wildfire and Earthquake Module data and documentation requirements.
  • Complete a Tornado Safe Room, Hurricane Wind, Hurricane Safe Room, Wildfire and Earthquake Module BCA.
