Summary(Plain Language Summary, not published)
The Hazus-MH 2.1 Canada software package is the Canadian adaptation of the United States version of Hazus-MH 2.1. This release updates the previous Hazus-MH 2.1 Canada release, Open File 7458 and includes a capability to model earthquake and flood risk. Hazus is a GIS-based tool developed in the US by the National Institute of Building Science in partnership with the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) to provide a national standard methodology for modelling potential physical, economic and social impacts from earthquakes, hurricanes, and floods. Hazus-MH 2.1 Canada applies earthquake and flood risk science in a tool freely available for any Canadian jurisdiction. Hazus outputs and analyses have many applications and have been used in a variety of sectors, including the insurance, engineering, emergency management, city planning, and building sectors. Development of Hazus-MH Canada received financial support from Defence Research Development Canada and support from FEMA.
