NJBOA Seminar entitled, “When Disaster Strikes”

Deadline for registration is June 5, 2023

NJBOA is pleased to announce that we will be hosting an online 5-hour seminar entitled, “When Disaster Strikes” on Thursday June 8, 2023, beginning at 8:30am.  This seminar will be presented by the International Code Council, and is approved for .5 CEU’s by the NJDCA.

All too often before and after a disaster, an affected community is left on its own to struggle with preparing to respond to the event and then assessing and dealing with its damage. When assessments are not conducted quickly, a community’s residents will reoccupy potentially unsafe structures. Small scale localized events can often be handled by local building departments. However, in a large scale and/or large regional disaster, local building departments are unable to meet the demand and often unable to provide these valuable assessments.

The ICC Disaster Response Inspector Program is aimed at training and certifying qualified professionals to assist with performing Post-Disaster Building Safety Evaluations. It also discusses the NIMS credentialing process whereby properly trained and qualified Post-Disaster Building Safety Evaluators can be prequalified and rostered. By properly training and pre-qualifying a pool of individuals building officials are better able to jump start recovery.

Course Objectives…

  • Discuss Various types of disasters and their impact on a community.

  • Demonstrate how to employ Disaster Planning Basics.

  • Explain the roles and duties of the Post-Disaster Building Safety Evaluator.

  • Discuss the ATC 20/45 Rapid and Detailed Building Safety Evaluations.

  • Identify various structure types.

  • Identify disaster-related damage to the various structure types.
