The emergence of catastrophic planning as a national priority under the Department of Homeland Security and FEMA presents a unique opportunity to “harness” the capabilities of Hazus-MH as a regional loss estimation tool. This paper presents an approach to fully integrating the Hazus-MH Earthquake Model into FEMA’s catastrophic planning initiative, with specific recommendations on model enhancements that will strengthen this national planning effort.
