On February 25, 2021, CUSEC is hosting a webinar on new technologies to support earthquake risk reduction, mitigation planning, and disaster resilience efforts. The webinar will feature the CUSEC Rapid Visual Screening (RVS) App—a data collection, visualization, and reporting tool for screening buildings for potential earthquake vulnerabilities.
The app and its components are based on FEMA’s P-154 Rapid Visual Screening of Buildings for Potential Seismic Hazards (3rd Edition) methodology. By using the RVS process, combined with the CUSEC RVS App, building and facility owners can identify buildings that may be vulnerable to earthquake shaking and make plans to address those vulnerabilities. During the webinar participants will learn:
- About the RVS process and why it is important for earthquake risk reduction.
- How the CUSEC RVS App can be used to support critical facility/building inventory projects and earthquake mitigation planning efforts.
- Ways data and reports from the RVS App can be used in risk analysis and loss estimation programs, such as FEMA’s HAZUS program.
- Technical requirements needed to access the app and overview of training materials.
