Hazus User of the Year Awards
As a way of recognizing those individuals who are dedicated to furthering the success of Hazus, FEMA has created the Hazus User of the Year designation to help show appreciation to those who have contributed to the success of the program. The success of Hazus is determined by awareness and usage - the more that communities are aware of its capabilities and utilize the program, the more lives can be saved, economic losses are decreased, preparedness increases, and faster response and recovery times are witnessed in impacted communities. Each quarter, FEMA will spotlight the contributions of a Hazus user who has provided exceptional services to the expansion of the Hazus program. This individual may be a user, a developer, a trainer or anyone who has been involved in adding value to Hazus.
