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
- How to obtain ROVER Software and advanced training
or organizations interested in pre- and post-earthquake building inspections,
including engineers, architects, building inspectors, facility managers, etc.
