What We Do
The Florida HAZUS User Group (FLHUG) was formed in June, 2006. The group was formed to coordinate data development, provide training opportunities, and champion the use of HAZUS within Florida. Officers and committee chairs were elected in January, 2007.
Early on, it was identified that regional chapters within Florida would also be beneficial. Regional contacts have volunteered for some areas and the Southeast Florida HAZUS User Group is the first regional chapter supporting the state group.
