DETAILS: HURREVAC is a decision-support tool used by emergency managers to gather the information they need to assist their evacuation decisions. The National Hurricane Program has transitioned to a web-based version of HURREVAC, the longtime hurricane decision support tool for government emergency managers. This comprehensive training will instruct emergency managers on basic and advanced features of HURREVAC. It will include an overview of HURREVAC, with interactive exercises and demonstrations to understand how to use current and new capabilities. Background information will be given on National Weather Service forecast products, utilized by the program. The Sea, Lake, and Overland S urges from Hurricanes (SLOSH) tool is integrated into the new HVX platform and designed to aid emergency managers in visualizing storm surge vulnerability. Students who do not have HURREVAC accounts should register prior to class. To register for HURREVAC, go to https://hvx-registration.hurrevac.com/?go=account:register and complete the registration form. This program is restricted to government emergency management use, and registration is only available to those with a government or agency email address. Please bring your laptop computers to class for hands-on exercises within the HURREVAC application. Target Audience: Enrollment is restricted to emergency management professionals from VDEM’s Region 5 and Region 1, and State Agencies supporting the VEST. Priority will be given to those working in these localities and State Agencies.
