Life Safety Risk Indicator
20 October 2022
This webinar provided an overview of the Life Safety Risk Indicator (LSRI). In an effort to develop a consistent way to recommend
projects that warrant funding based on risk to life safety, USACE has developed the LSRI tool, which provides a screening-level,
relative representation of the life risk (average annual life loss) that would be reduced if a given structural or non-structural flood
damage reduction project was constructed. The LSRI is intended to serve as a budget tool to prioritize studies and projects
starting with the FY25 budget development process. The LSRI builds off of and replaces the Life Safety Hazard Index (LSHI) tool
by incorporating not just consequence information, but also likelihood of the consequences. Presenter Jason Needham
(Consequence Specialist, Risk Management Center) described the LSRI methodology and introduced the web-based LSRI tool
and how to use it.
