Track: Disaster and Emergency Management
Authors: Kevin Mickey, Terry Jackson
In 2012-13 the Georgia Department of Community Affairs, in collaboration with multiple government, academic, and private partners, began a process that has led to significant enhancements in the effectiveness of its hazard mitigation program. Accomplishments include a robust training program; development of Esri-based tools and workflows that incorporate detailed hazard and exposure data into Hazus-MH and other loss estimation models; and a series of successful proof of concept projects.
