• Rapid Visual Screening of Buildings for Potential Seismic Hazards (FEMA P-154) Training, 8:00am-12:00pm (Tuesday, April 5)

    Instructor: Mike Griffin
    Cost: $35 (covers A/V and venue fees)

    Training on the Third Edition of FEMA P-154, Rapid Visual Screening of Buildings for Potential Seismic Hazards, covers methods and processes that enable users to rapidly identify, inventory, and screen buildings that are potentially seismically hazardous before earthquakes occur. 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 published by FEMA in January 2015. Although some of the material remains unchanged from the second edition FEMA P-154 (published in 2002), the Third Edition provides major enhancements. The target audience for this training includes structural engineers, architects, other design professionals, building officials, construction contractors, architectural and engineering students, or other individuals with a background in building design and construction.

  • Post-Earthquake Reconnaissance Workshop, 1:00pm-4:30pm (Tuesday, April 5)

    Hosted by: The Student Leadership Council and EERI Learning from Earthquakes program
    Cost: $30

    This workshop will provide overviews of conducting post-earthquake reconnaissance in structural and geotechnical engineering and demonstrations of EERI field data collection tools. The workshop will include a field exercise that will give participants the opportunity to practice making reconnaissance observations using the demonstrated tools. EERI members who complete this training will be well-positioned to contribute effectively to reconnaissance efforts following an earthquake in their area.
