Updated Hazus Website

The website for FEMA’s Hazus program has a new look and additional features designed to improve its usability. Redesigned navigational tools, new links, and updated graphics and layouts will help users access information more quickly and easily.

Visitors to the site will find the list of main categories on the left-hand side has been restructured and expanded. The site has also been better linked to Risk MAP to provide even more relevant information. In addition, users now have the ability to utilize saved searches to look through the FEMA library for any and all available resources related to the Hazus program.

Look for additional enhancements in the coming months that will improve and simplify other areas of the FEMA site.

We hope that you’ll find the new Hazus site easier to use and full of useful information about the program.  Please visit the site at
