When Disaster Strikes Institute
May 9, 2019 - May 10, 2019
The 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 the 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.
