  • With the support of the Nevada Division of Emergency Management the Nevada Bureau of Mines and Geology (NBMG) conducted a project to model the potential earthquake loss in each county in the state of Nevada using HAZUS-MH.
  • Potential earthquake faults that are located near each County seat where selected as the basis for each County HAZUS-MH model.
  • The results generated by HAZUS-MH for this project, including statistics and maps, have been made available to the Nevada HAZUS User Group and to the general public.
One of the first pieces of information needed in disaster planning, preparedness, and response is a general estimate of potential damage and costs of an event, such as an earthquake. Nevada has a rela
Analysis earthquake vulnerable regions using FEMA의 HAZUS-MH analysis tool. About earthquake vulnerable areas, conduct a simulation depending on the degree of earthquakes to identify building damage, economic losses, and casulties in advance to use as decision making factors. Identify secondary damages such as next possible earthquakes, landslide and conflagration.
  • For earthquake management in regions with high earthquake occurrence rate, utilize HAZUS-MH tool to estimate damage scale, earthquake possibilities for rapid respond and repair plan decision making when real earthquake occurs.
  • Discuss scale of building damages and economic loss to enact facility laws and regulations to minimize damages.
  • Determine earthquake vulnerable areas through pre-simulation and inform local residents of code of conduct related to the earthquake response and prevention, shelter etc in advance.
