What are Risk Maps for?

Risk maps help you to understand the hazards and risks in your community and encourage everyone in the community to take action
to prevent a possible disaster or reduce its effects if it happens. For example, they show schools or other important buildings that are
in high-risk area for landslides. It also helps you be better prepared for a potential emer-gency. For example, they show you where the
safest buildings are, or which are the best routes to follow if you are ordered to evacuate the area. This way, you and your community
will know what to do in case of an emergency
