HAZUS-MH Application: Hurricane Wind: Estimated Loss of Functionality of Hospitals in Hurricane Ivan -- Map Series Template Poster
Potential uses for this map include: (Pre-event uses) Identification of hospitals most at risk from storm surge and hurricane winds; Incorporation of HAZUS-MH analysis of debris generation to identify hospitals that may inaccessible; Identification of population most at risk from the effects of storm surge and high winds, and thus requiring medical attention; (Post-event uses) Identification of hospitals with moderate to high probability of losing functionality due to the effects of high winds and storm surge; Input in the deployment of Disaster Medical Assistance Teams (DMAT) and the location of staging areas for deployment of response resources; and Identification of population at risk and infrastructure that is exposed to high winds and storm surge, and areas with potentially high concentrations of debris.
