The Correct Answer:

A. True, Because each special event is somewhat different from others, a hazard analysis should be conducted prior to each event.

Explanation:

Hazard analysis is one of the most critical factors in predicting future possibilities. The analysis is generally done by collecting all the information and predicting the consequences that may occur in the future.

All the information related to the geographical area, the weather condition, etc., should be kept in focus while analyzing hazardous situations. Hazard analysis is also critical to prevent possible emergencies in the future and the responsibility towards preventing the loss of life. So that is why it becomes imperative to perform a hazard analysis before every event.

The factors that may play a critical role in analyzing the possible risk factors are topographical or geographical features, natural disasters, weather patterns, etc. 

The secondary hazard that may also play a significant role during the hazard analysis are tornadoes, power failure, etc. Hazard analysis is the responsibility of the event planners to maintain efficient functioning and accomplish the event.

The following characteristics should be taken into consideration while performing the hazard analysis:

  • Frequency of occurrence
  • Location of the hazard
  • Duration of the hazard
  • Magnitude and intensity of the hazard
  • The spatial extent or the impact of the hazard
  • Speed of the onset of the hazard
  • The ability to warn the government organizations
