HAZUS-MH: FEMA’S SOFTWARE PROGRAM FOR ESTIMATING POTENTIAL LOSSES FROM DISASTERS
What is HAZUS-MH?

Tool that can identify hazard related risks,
calculate potential losses to life and
property, and help define effective ways to
reduce losses

Available from FEMA free of charge

What Is HAZUS-MH

        HAZUS-MH is a planning tool that estimates
         damage and losses from natural hazards
    It is a planning tool, NOT an engineering tool
          Engineering-level data (i.e. Hydrology & Hydraulic studies for Flood
           modeling) can be input to increase accuracy, but results still produce
           planning-level estimations

    It estimates physical damage & economic losses

    It assesses population needs related to emergency
     management

    It allows users to compare results from different study case
     scenarios, including those that result from specific
     mitigation actions (useful for benefits analysis)

Florida HAZUS Users Group


 Promotes the use of HAZUS across the state
 Builds on Florida’s regional approach to risk
  assessment and planning.
 Effectively uses a committee structure to
  identify, develop and implement projects.
 Florida HUG will continue to play a pivotal role
  in HAZUS training and data management in the
  state of Florida.

What is CDMS?


 CDMS is a tool developed by FEMA to support
  integration of locally developed inventory data
  into the HAZUS-MH loss estimation process.
 Primary functions
   • Support transfer of data into and out of the major master
     statewide databases
   • Provide validation of new data into the system
   • Allow users to query and print information within the
     system

     Data management

     Spring 2009
      Florida Division of Emergency Management
       has numerous, ongoing data development
       projects
          EMPG Scope of Work Requirements
          Regional Evacuation Studies
          HSIP State Layers
      Portal is “read-only” for all others as FDEM
       works on statewide essential facilities layers

     Data management


     Spring 2009
      Essential facilities updated
              Fire Stations, Police Stations, Schools, Medical, & EOC
      Hazardous Materials Sites (FDEM)
      Wastewater Facilities (FDEP)
      Potable Water Facilities (FDEP)

     Future plans


      FDEM working on leveraging demographics
       and vehicles from statewide regional
       evacuation update; and aggregated building
       and exposure data from statewide parcels
      Heavy use of HAZUS analyses with State
       Hazard Mitigation Plan update
      Tie participation to EMPG funding???

Why use SLOSH?

  Use the existing partnership with
   NOAA…FEMA doesn’t have surge modeling
   expertise
  SLOSH is simplified and independently valid
   to within 20% of observed surge heights
  Using SLOSH MOMs, the US is covered!
  FEMA already pays for SLOSH basin updates,
   why pay for separate model development?
  Thousands of hurricane scenarios already
   run, just need to do damage estimates
