Abstract
The Earth Sciences Sector, Natural Resources Canada (ESS/NRCan), selected HAZUS as a best practice for quantitative loss estimation based on a suitability analysis of available risk assessment methods in the public domain. With a mandate from the NRCan Public Safety Geoscience Program, and support from the CRTI Risk Assessment Methods program of Centre for Security Science, Defence Research and Development Canada (DRDC), ESS is working with FEMA to develop a harmonized North American version of HAZUS that can be integrated into the evolving All-Hazard Risk Assessment Framework for Canada (AHRAF), and delivered using standards-based protocols under development by the Public Security Technical Program (PSTP) of DRDC.
