When Disaster Strikes

When Disaster Strikes


Natural disasters such as severe storms, earthquakes, tornadoes, and floods can cause severe property damage and cripple affected communities. If your community is struck, are you ready?

The International Code Council's When Disaster Strikes Institute will provide hands-on instruction on assessing damage in the form of activities, case studies and interactive simulations that walk participants through disaster scenarios, encourage discussion and describe how paperwork should be completed.

All too often after a disaster, an affected community is left on its own to struggle with assessing its damage and determining whether structures can be re-inhabited. When assessments are not conducted quickly, a community’s residents will reoccupy potentially unsafe structures. Participants learn techniques on how to become a properly trained second responder and, on completion, can be relied on to assist with performing post-disaster building assessments. Each participant will receive all necessary reference materials.

NOTE: Discounts will be taken at time of checkout. 

Course Objectives...

  • Explain the role of the National Incident Management System.
  • Prepare for mobilization prior to a disaster.
  • Execute site mobilization procedures.
  • Conduct a site inspection.
  • Estimate damage by percentage of structure or by dollars per square foot.

  • Communicate with affected persons at the disaster site.

Earthquake-resistant Design of Buildings and Other Structures – U.S. Practice

Earthquake-resistant Design of Buildings and Other Structures - U.S. Practice

Learn the principles and practices of earthquake-resistant design of building structures and understand how these principles relate to code requirements. The International Building Code® (IBC®) now serves as the basis of legal codes of cities, counties, and states across the United States. The seismic design provisions of the 2015 IBC, based on those of ASCE 7-10, Minimum Design Loads for Buildings and Other Structures, are the specific focus of this course. The ground motion maps and parameters used in seismic design as well as the importance of the soils at the site of the structure in seismic design are discussed. An overview of the seismic design provisions of the 2015 IBC/ASCE 7-10 is presented in a manner that is understandable to a broad audience.

The detailing requirements that go hand-in-hand with the seismic design requirements of ASCE 7-10 are given in the materials chapters of the IBC, which refer to materials standards. In the case of concrete design and construction, the standard is ACI 318 Building Code Requirements for Structural Concrete. The seismic detailing requirements of the 2014 edition of ACI 318, which are adopted by the 2015 IBC, are discussed and explained as part of this seminar.
