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

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


Selection Criteria:
Federal, state, local, and tribal emergency managers and GIS specialists; planners; and others who support flood mitigation and response activities and who wish to expand their Hazus-MH skills beyond those developed in the E313 Basic Hazus-MH course.
