This course builds on the information provided in E0313, Basic Hazus-MH, by providing an in-depth exploration of the Hazus Hurricane model. An overview of the hurricane-related inventory components is provided. An emphasis is placed on techniques for defining a hurricane hazard, adjusting parameters for identifying economic and social impacts from hurricanes, and interpreting and applying model outputs. Best practices for using the hurricane model to support emergency management are identified. Course instruction includes lectures, demonstrations, and multiple hands-on individual and group activities.

Course Objectives:
Explain the key components of the methodology employed in the Hazus-MH Hurricane model for defining the hurricane hazard as well as options that users have for refining the hurricane hazard definition.
Identify the key parameters that influence the social and economic impact assessments generated by the Hurricane model.
Be able to identify and apply best practices for most effectively using the Hurricane model to support emergency management.

Selection Criteria: Federal, state, local, and tribal emergency managers and GIS specialists; planners; and others who support wind mitigation and response activities and who wish to expand their Hazus-MH skills beyond those developed in E0313, Basic Hazus-MH.
