preparing for a natural hazard
Preparing for a Natural Hazard
  • What are our risks?
  • Where are the best locations for shelters and do we have enough space?
  • Where should we target outreach activities?
mitigating the effects of a natural hazard
Mitigating the Effects of a Natural Hazard
  • Where should we put our resources to achieve maximum benefit?
  • How much will this mitigation strategy decrease our losses?
  • Where are we in our mitigation plan? How have we progressed?
responding to a natural hazard
Responding to a Natural Hazard
  • How many injuries do we expect?
  • What are the best evacuation routes?
  • What hospitals were damaged and where should we take our injured?
recovering from a natural hazard
Recovering from a Natural Hazard
  • What is the demand on recovery staff?
  • How much debris do we have to remove?
  • How much funding does the community need to request to recover?

summary
Summary
  • HAZUS-MH allows you to:
    • IDENTIFY vulnerable areas that may require planning considerations (e.g., land use or building code requirements)
    • ASSESS the level of readiness and preparedness to deal with a disaster before the disaster occurs
    • ESTIMATE potential losses from specific hazard events, including pre-event, near real-time, and post-event report capability
    • DECIDE on how to allocate resources for the most effective and efficient response and recovery
    • PRIORITIZE the mitigation measures that need to be implemented to reduce future losses
