How can emergency managers map the area of impact from storms, earthquakes or floods? How can emergency managers determine the likelihood of damage to hospitals, police, fire and emergency operations centers from ground shaking and hurricane force winds? How can emergency managers identify and quantify the population most at risk from damaging hurricanes, earthquakes and floods? HAZUS-MH has the answers! A disaster exercise provides emergency managers with an objective assessment of their capacity to prepare for, respond to and recover from a disaster. A key to a successful exercise is the ability to quantify and map the potential consequences from disasters, including scope of damages, exposed population, and loss of functionality to essential facilities. As a regional loss estimation tool, HAZUS-MH is uniquely suited for disaster exercise scenario development.
