This course builds on the information provided in E0313, Basic Hazus-MH,
by providing an in-depth exploration of the Hazus Earthquake model. An
overview of the earthquake-related inventory components is provided. An
emphasis is placed on techniques for defining an earthquake hazard,
adjusting parameters for identifying economic and social impacts from
earthquakes, and interpreting and applying model outputs. Best practices
for using the Earthquake model to support emergency management are
identified. Course instruction includes lectures, demonstrations, and
multiple hands-on individual and group activities.
Selection Criteria: The audience for this course includes State and local emergency managers and GIS specialists, State and local planners, regional personnel with responsibility for earthquake mitigation and response activities, and other Federal agencies with risk assessment responsibilities. A strong working knowledge of ArcGIS is recommended.
Prerequisites: Federal, state, local, and tribal emergency managers and GIS
specialists; planners; and others who support earthquake mitigation and
response activities and who wish to expand their Hazus-MH skills beyond
those developed in E0313, Basic Hazus-MH.
- Explain the key components of the methodology employed in the Hazus-MH Earthquake model for defining the earthquake hazard as well as options that users have for refining the earthquake hazard definition.
- Identify the key parameters that influence the social and economic impact assessments generated by the Earthquake model.
- Identify and apply best practices for most effectively using the Earthquake model to support emergency management.
