What We Do
The Rocky Mountain HAZUS User Group (RMHUG) has been established to support HAZUS users across the Rocky Mountain Region, including the states of Colorado, Wyoming, Montana, Idaho, Utah, Arizona and New Mexico. The RMHUG will help facilitate idea and resource sharing, specifically concerning the HAZUS-MH flood and earthquake models. Conference calls and meetings will be periodically held to create a forum for sharing successes, failures, technical issues and to form relationships and build a user community. Resources and important links will be available on the website including notices of upcoming training opportunities.
The RMHUG is informal and open to any interested parties, but suggested participants include local, state, and federal emergency management staff, GIS users or professionals, and other HAZUS practitioners.
