FEMA Mitigation Best Practices: HIHUG Hawaii HAZUS Atlas   [open pdf - 92KB]

Alternate Title: HIHUG Hawaii HAZUS Atlas

"To help Hawaii's disaster managers better prepare for and respond to potentially devastating earthquakes, the Pacific Disaster Center (PDC)--in collaboration with Hawaii State Civil Defense and the Hawaii State Earthquake Advisory Committee (HSEAC)--has created the Hawaii HAZUS Atlas (HHA). The PDC formally unveiled the HHA at the HSEAC-sponsored workshop, Estimated Earthquake Losses for Hawaii County. Over 100 participants attended the event in Hilo, including Hawaii County Mayor Harry Kim. Stakeholders from emergency management and planning communities identified several potential applications of the HHA, ranging from assisting emergency response operations to supporting future exercises."
