From the Paper:

"The location of a facility for the business needs to be assessed for emergency planning for natural risks, man-made, and emerging risks. It is essential that the location of the facility assess the risks around it as certain parts of the country have a higher probability for natural disasters than others. For example, if a facility is located in Florida, it has a higher risk of experiencing a hurricane than a facility that is located in Minnesota. A facility located in Minnesota has a higher risk of experiencing a blizzard than the facility located in Florida. A facility location also needs to assess the types of businesses and companies around it. "
