Web Event:     FEMA P-154, Rapid Visual Screening of Buildings for Potential Seismic Hazards

Date & Time:  Wednesday, April 27, 9am-1pm (PT)/8am-12pm (Alaska)

Register: https://us02web.zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_J4s0JasvRdi11Di0nHI2fA  

Description:    This free training covers methods and processes that enable personnel to rapidly identify, inventory, and screen local buildings according to their expected safety and usability during and after earthquakes.  Local officials can use these data to plan and prioritize further engineering and vulnerability analysis, emergency-response needs, and mitigation projects.

Instructor:      Morgan Griffith, Senior Managing Engineer, Exponent

Audience:        Building officials, engineers, architects, building owners, emergency managers, risk analysts, and other interested citizens and volunteers.

Document:      Download for free from this site: https://www.fema.gov/sites/default/files/2020-07/fema_earthquakes_rapid-visual-screening-of-buildings-for-potential-seismic-hazards-a-handbook-third-edition-fema-p-154.pdf

PDH Eligible:   Yes. (Note: In the case of multiple participants watching the training on the same device, a PDH certificate will only be issued to the individual who registered for the training.)

 

Web Event:     FEMA E-74, Reducing the Risks of Nonstructural Earthquake Damage

Date & Time:  Wednesday, May 18, 9am-1pm (PT)/8am-12pm (Alaska)

Register: https://us02web.zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_n7r4N9LwT_iQH4BH4Ryqog

Description:    This free web-based training describes the sources and types of nonstructural earthquake damage and the effective methods and guidance that individuals and organizations can use to take action now before the next earthquake and minimize future injuries and property losses from nonstructural risks. Nonstructural components of buildings include all elements that are not part of the structural system; that is, the architectural, mechanical, electrical, and plumbing systems, as well as furniture, fixtures, equipment, and other contents.

Instructor:      Keith Porter, Research Professor, University of Colorado Boulder, and Principal, SPA Risk

Document:      Download for free from this site: https://www.fema.gov/sites/default/files/2020-07/fema_earthquakes_reducing-the-risks-of-nonstructural-earthquake-damage-a-practical-guide-fema-e-74.pdf

Audience:        Property owners, facility managers, local officials, engineers, architects, small businesses, and emergency managers.

PDH Eligible:   Yes. (Note: In the case of multiple participants watching the training on the same device, a PDH certificate will only be issued to the individual who registered for the training.)

 

Web Event:     ATC-20, Post-Earthquake Safety Evaluation of Buildings

Date & Time: Tuesday, May 24, 9am-1pm (PT)/8am-12pm (Alaska)

Register: https://us02web.zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_JiwRl2seSWC_AIhQuW8ImA

Description:    This free training provides instruction on rapid and detailed evaluation procedures for evaluating earthquake-damaged buildings and posting them as INSPECTED (apparently safe, green placard), LIMITED ENTRY (yellow placard), or UNSAFE (red placard). The web-based training provides examples that allow attendees to evaluate building damage conditions, assess the overall risk from the damage, and recommend which of the three placards should be posted on the building.

Instructor:      Keith Porter, Research Professor, University of Colorado Boulder, and Principal, SPA Risk

Audience:        Building officials, engineers, architects, building owners, emergency managers, risk analysts, and other interested citizens and volunteers.

Document:      Hard copy available free of charge to attendees who complete the request form after the training.

PDH Eligible:   Yes. (Note: In the case of multiple participants watching the training on the same device, a PDH certificate will only be issued to the individual who registered for the training.)

 

Web Event:     FEMA P-2055, Post-disaster Building Safety Evaluation Guidance

Date & Time:  Wednesday, May 25, 9am-1pm (PT)/8am-12pm (Alaska)

Register: https://us02web.zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_ZnT3wZsbS92yGDxWcTN9wA

Description:    This free training provides an overview of existing procedures for post-disaster building safety evaluations and issues related to structural safety and habitability. Guidance is also presented on planning, managing, and implementing safety evaluation programs before and after a disaster incident.

Instructor:      Ed Huston, Owner and Principal, Huston Structural Engineering

Audience:        Architects, engineers, and building officials directly involved in post-disaster building safety evaluation. Also, policy makers, emergency managers, and health officials who are involved in management of the post-disaster evaluation process.
