HEC-RAS Basics Course


4/3/2017 - 4/6/2017 
E313 Basic HAZUS-MH
Location:  Emmitsburg, MD
This is a 4 day resident course

Emergency Management Institute (EMI)
16825 S. Seton Ave.
Emmitsburg, MD  21727
Admissions: 301-447-1000

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. Topics addressed in this course include overviews of building and population inventory components; options for describing the magnitude and extent of modeled hazards; loss estimation methodologies; and 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.

Objectives: Upon completion of the course, participants should be able to:
  • Learn the types of information that Hazus-MH can produce, as well as, how that information relates to emergency management.
  • Know how to navigate the Hazus-MH software user interface.
  • Develop a basic understanding of how Hazus generates information about exposure and losses related to flood, earthquake and hurricane hazards.
Prerequisites: Skills equivalent to those taught in E190 ArcGIS for Emergency Managers.

Selection Criteria: Federal, state, local, and tribal specialists, researchers, insurance companies, utilities, and others who are involved with or interested in understanding the social and economic impacts associated with floods, hurricanes, or earthquakes.
