This course provides mitigation planners with the skills to use Geographic Information Systems (GIS) tools, with an emphasis on Hazus-MH, to create and update the flood, hurricane and earthquake components of community risk assessments. A combination of individual as well as group activities lead the class through the step-by-step process of conducting a risk assessment including hazard identification, profiling of hazards, developing asset inventories, estimating losses, and prioritizing mitigation options.

Course Objectives:
  • Define the components of the mitigation planning process - with a focus on risk assessment - that can be supported by geospatial tools and data.
  • List specific examples of how the capabilities of Hazus-MH, as well as Hazus-MH model inputs, can support risk assessments for floods, earthquakes, hurricanes and other types of hazards.
  • Identify strategies for improving Hazus-MH inputs and other related GIS data in order to derive the most benefit from GIS tools when applied to risk assessment and other aspects of mitigation planning.
Prerequisites: E0313, Basic Hazus-MH and skills equivalent to those taught in E0190, ArcGIS for Emergency Managers.
