What We Do

The CanHUG (Canadian HAZUS Users Group) was formed in January 2011 to provide a forum for HAZUS users and stakeholders on Canadian application of HAZUS. This group shares information on HAZUS applications in disaster risk reduction, the use of the HAZUS software, expansion of HAZUS capability, and the implimentation of a HAZUS North America, adaptable to all countries, while the group defines its role during its formative stage. It is affiliated with a more broadly scoped Canadian group looking at risk assessment for decision making in disaster risk reduction (RAUG - Risk Assessment Users Group).

Currently CanHUG is facilitated by the Risk Assessment Project of the Natural Resources Canada Program for Public Safety Geoscience. To participate, email .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address), Geological Survey of Canada, Vancouver, British Columbia.

SACRAMENTO, Calif.  – When earthquakes occur, some of the damage happens in areas of our homes and businesses that may be nearly impossible to spot without close attention. Residents and business owners in Napa and Solano Counties continue to discover damage from the South Napa Earthquake.

The California Governor’s Office of Emergency Services (Cal OES) and the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) urge people in those counties to take time to check for any signs of potential damage and register for assistance as soon as possible.
