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.
