An Impact Analysis should:

•  Figure out which hazards are likely to occur.

•  Figure out what the impact of each hazard
could be and then quantify the impacts.

•  Figure out which facilities, functions, and services
are most vulnerable to each type of hazard.

•  Figure out what must be done to protect
vulnerable facilities, functions, and services.

Also do an economic and financial impact analysis in
order to examine the potential economic or financial
losses that could occur if essential services, functions,
or processes are lost. This analysis should show what’s
at risk and should influence what must be done to protect
vulnerable facilities, functions, and services and what
steps must be taken to continue operations during an
emergency.

 
 

The above is based on NFPA 1600 2007 Annex A 5.3.3.
