HAZUS-MH is a powerful, free ArcGIS Desktop 10 extension developed by the Federal Emergency Management Agency that estimates the impacts of hurricanes, floods, and earthquakes on communities. Hazus products include estimates of damage to buildings and lifelines, displaced populations and public shelter needs, and short- and long-term economic impacts. This workshop will introduce Hazus-MH features through multiple hands-on exercises. Participants will explore realistic examples of Hazus-MH models based on western US hazards. They will also be introduced to the many options that users have for integrating improved hazard data as well as data that describes buildings, populations, and infrastructure in order to enhance the quality of modeling outputs. This workshop will be of interest to anyone working in or supporting emergency management activities.
1: List the goals and capabilities of Hazus-MH
2: Be able to perform a basic Hazus-MH analysis for earthquake and flood hazards
3: Be able to list available resources for expanding knowledge of Hazus-MH capabilities and applications
