Northwest Hazus Users Group

Kelly Stone's invite to the NW HUG meeting.

"I (Kelly Stone) wanted to provide everyone an update for the NWHUG since it has been quite a while. Well as you can see our name has changed to the NorthWest Hazus User Group to encompass Alaska, Idaho, Oregon, and Washington. I think this larger group will allow us to learn more of how Hazus is being used for various communities to prepare, plan, respond, and mitigate natural hazards. I have a few updates I would like to share below as well as some links.
 
Our next NWHUG call will be Feb. 20th at 10:00am Pacific Time. I will provide an overview of Hazus projects occurring in Region X.

WAURISA is hosting a workshop titled Emergency and Disaster Preparedness for the GIS Professional on February 4th. Registration closes this Friday so if you would like to register please go to http://www.waurisa.org/
