AIAH and TXA is currently working with FEMA and local officials in Harris County and the surrounding areas affected by Hurricane Harvey to deploy trained volunteers to assess whether damaged buildings are safe for habitation. The structures that must be examined far outnumber the quantity of trained city inspectors. The AIA Safety-Assessment Program (SAP) training provides architects, engineers, and building officials and inspectors with the knowledge to provide evaluation of facilities, buildings, and infrastructures in the aftermath of a disastrous event.
AIA Houston is hosting this free event with lunch provided! Please visit their website if you have any further questions at https://aiahouston.org/v/registration/SAP-Training/lr/
