What We Do

The San Diego and Imperial County HAZUS User Group (SDIHUG) was formed March of 2009.  SDIHUG aims to build partnerships and strategies to manage multiple hazards facing the southern border counties of California through the use of FEMA’s HAZUS software.  We are looking for stakeholders from various disciplines and organizations to join us.

Our Goals include…
  providing a forum for discussion
  encouraging local training opportunities
  promoting the use of HAZUS in the region
  developing collaborations on projects and data
  conducting public outreach and education on the use of HAZUS

News from Region IX

Last day to register with FEMA and apply for SBA disaster loans

SACRAMENTO, Calif. – Today is the last day that wildfire survivors in Calaveras and Lake counties can register to receive housing or other needs assistance grants from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and apply for disaster recovery loans from the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA).

Include Your Pets in Disaster Preparedness Planning

SACRAMENTO, Calif. – Many pets were left behind to fend for themselves during the wildfires in California’s Calaveras and Lake counties resulting in serious injuries, death or disappearance.

This occurred because the fire came so fast many survivors had no time to save the animals.

Keep Your Important Documents Safe from a Disaster

SACRAMENTO, Calif. – Fumbling through files for important papers can be frustrating. But when an emergency strikes, trying to gather up all those documents can be downright frightening.

There is a way around all the late-minute hassle, but it will take some time and a way to organize and contain them so that you can grab and go when a disaster strikes. And, with predictions of more severe weather and flooding this winter due to El Nino, now is a good time to organize your papers.
