Post-Disaster Building Safety Assessment Training
November 9 @ 8:00 am - 4:00 pm
|8:00 am – 4:00 pm||Post-Disaster Building Safety Assessment Training (6.5 PDH)|
|12:00 pm – 12:45 pm||Lunch|
This full-day training seminar focuses on the methods of assessment of the safety and usability of buildings after natural and man-made disasters. This training can be applied by engineers and architects to assist government agencies in their emergency response to such events.
Based on the Applied Technology Council’s well-accepted post-disaster methodologies and documentation guidelines ATC-20 and ATC-45 (for earthquake and wind/flood events, respectively), this SAP training course will provide engineers, architects and code-enforcement professionals with an understanding of the basic skills required to perform safety assessments of structures following disasters.
Case studies will be presented and discussed to illustrate examples of possible damage scenarios that a Second Responder could encounter and how to properly assess the damage and record it for later use by emergency management personnel. Attendees will be introduced to the FEMA requirements and protocols for responders operating in a post-disaster theater which will prepare them to take the self-study online courses required of Second Responders who wish to perform post-disaster assessments.
Includes copies of ATC-20 and ATC-45 for each attendee, and pre-printed Evaluator Student Manuals.
