Hazus Inputs, by structure

Over the last 4 CanHUG meetings we have heard about and discussed Hazus inputs. They included the general concept of inputs, Hazard scenarios, Building assets and Infrastructure assets. The last of this series will be on Demographics. What became clear through these meetings is the thoroughness of our societal assets that Hazus can evaluate for hazard event losses. It became clear that, with thoroughness, comes complexity, and for most things, simplification.

Natural Resources Canada's National Scale Geohazard Risk Project

The National Scale Geohazard Risk team of Natural Resources Canada (NRCan) is adapting US FEMA's Hazus loss estimation tool for use in Canada, as well as promoting and applying its use in Canada. Hazus Canada is now available for use in Canada for estimating potential losses from earthquakes and floods. The application can be obtained here.
