What We Do

The CHUG (Central HAZUS Users Group) was formed with the intent of providing a means of collaboration between HAZUS users within FEMA Region V (Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Minnesota, Ohio and Wisconsin).  This group looks at software problems, HAZUS projects, and the overall general use of the HAZUS software.  Sharing the successes and failures between users helps to bring the entire region together in planning for natural disasters.

CHUG Mission

The overall goal of the CHUG is to maximize the potential of HAZUS and to get the most out of its results within the region.
