Role of Data in Use of HAZUS-MH for Risk Assessment and Preparedness
Acknowledging that inventory data is critical to accurate HAZUS-MH analyses, FEMA has developed and led several initiatives to improve inventory data and use of the data for risk assessments, mitigation and preparedness planning. This presentation highlights the role of FEMA Region X in a proactive approach to geospatial preparedness and state support. The Role of Data in Use of HAZUS-MH for Risk Assessment and Preparedness was presented by Joseph Toland, FEMA Region X, during the 2007 Annual National HAZUS Users Conference. The first annual HAZUS Users Conference was held concurrently with the ESRI International User Conference in San Diego, CA.
