ROVER Webinar - July 31, 2013 Print E-mail

In partnership with the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), CUSEC is pleased to announce a FREE, one-hour webinar on the practical use of FEMA’s open-source ROVER building inventory and assessment tool.

ROVER, or Rapid Observation and Visual Evaluation of Risk, is a fast, free, mobile software tool for pre- and post-earthquake building safety screening.  It allows building owners, communities, and professionals to collect building inventory information and identify earthquake mitigation and post-earthquake inspection priorities.  ROVER software incorporates the internationally recognized standards of FEMA 154:  Rapid Visual Screening for Potential Seismic Hazards and ATC-20: Post-Earthquake Safety Evaluation of Buildings.

FEMA will soon release a new version of RORVER, version 2.0.1, and the program has recently been adopted by the California Emergency Management Agency for use in their Safety Assessment Program (CalSAP) and by the Utah Seismic Safety Commission for use in a statewide seismic safety assessment of school buildings. 

During this brief webinar you will learn more about:

- Features and use of ROVER

- Real world implementation of ROVER
