FEMA/EMI: E0313 Basic Hazus-MH
December 12, 2016 - December 15, 2016
The FEMA/EMI: E0313 Basic Hazus-MH course is scheduled to take place December 12 -15, 2016 in Emmitsburg, MD.
This course offers a hands-on introduction to Hazus-MH, FEMA’s GIS-based tool for analyzing the social and economic impacts from natural hazards including hurricanes, earthquakes and floods (riverine and coastal). Impact assessments for each hazard include shelter needs, short and long term economic losses, and debris estimations. Hazus-MH can also assess impacts on transportation and utilities, agricultural losses, and vehicle losses for selected hazards.
Expected topics to include:
- Overviews of building and population inventory components
- Options for describing the magnitude and extent of modeled hazards
- Loss estimation methodologies
- Options for creating maps, tables, and reports that describe hazard impacts
Particular emphasis is given to exploring and interpreting the outputs that Hazus-MH can generate as well as discussing how that information can be applied to support emergency management needs and goals. All activities are based on Hazus-MH provided inputs.
Prerequisites: Required: Skills equivalent to those taught in E0190, ArcGIS for Emergency Managers.
