FEMA Mitigation Best Practices: HAZUS - Comprehensive Data Management System (CDMS)   [open pdf - 30KB]

"The Federal Emergency Management Agency Best Practices Portfolio consists of mitigation stories submitted by individuals and communities that describe measures they have taken to reduce the loss of life and property from disasters. These Best Practices are meant to provide ideas and concepts about reducing losses and to encourage others to evaluate their own risk and consider mitigation as a long-term solution to reducing that risk." [...] "In January, 2007, FEMA and the South Carolina Emergency Management Division (SCEMD) launched a pilot project to develop a HAZUS-MH Web-based portal that enables users to easily enter, update and share default/up-to-date data for HAZUS-MH, which will greatly facilitate hazard identification and risk analysis for earthquake, flood and hurricane hazards." This and other individual FEMA Best Practices documents are also combined in "Mitigation Best Practices: Public and Private Sector Best Practice Stories for All Activity/Project Types in All States and Territories Relating to All Hazards [August 10, 2011]," which can be accessed at the following link: [https://www.hsdl.org/?abstract&did=683132]
