FEMA P-154 Rapid Visual Screening &
ATC-20 Post-Earthquake Safety Evaluation Training
October 2-3, 2018 | Belleville, Illinois
CUSEC, in partnership with FEMA, the Illinois Emergency Management Agency, and the HOPE Coalition is hosting a two-day earthquake training in Belleville, Illinois on October 2-3, 2018. The training will include:
FEMA P-154: Rapid Visual Screening of Buildings for Potential Seismic Hazards
FEMA P-154 provides instruction on how to identify potentially hazardous buildings before earthquakes occur. The 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. This training is based on the third edition of the document updated and published by FEMA in January 2015.
ATC-20: Procedures for Post-Earthquake Safety Evaluation of Buildings
ATC-20 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 training demonstrates how 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. These evaluations and placards can be used in planning and executing evacuation, re-entry, and rebuilding strategies.
