The Safety Assessment Program (SAP) utilizes mutual aid resources and
volunteers in the form of professional engineers, architects, and certified
building inspectors to assist local governments by doing post-disaster building
evaluations.The program is managed by the California Emergency Management
Agency (CalEMA) with cooperation from professional organizations, including
SEAOC. CalEMA will issue Disaster Service Worker (DSW) ID cards to all
professionally licensed volunteers who have completed the training. Those who
are not yet licensed will just receive a certificate and may contact CalEMA
upon licensure to receive the DSW ID card.
Description and Purpose
The purpose of the CalEMA Safety Assessment Program (SAP) is to help local
government perform post earth¬quake, wind, flood, and blast safety evaluations
as quickly as possible. The post earthquake evaluation is based on the ATC-20
document developed in 1987. SEAONC’s Disaster Emergency Services Committee has
sponsored trainings on a regular basis (typically every other year) since then.
The training program has evolved and improved over time and currently enjoys a
reputation for excellence. Past participants have commented especially on the
value of the afternoon case studies, which are led by SEAONC members with
post-earthquake safety evaluation experience.
Attendees who are licensed professionals (Civil, Structural, or Geotechnical
Engineers; Architects; Geologists; Certified Building Inspectors) may apply for
and obtain Disaster Service Worker identification cards issued by the
California Emergency Management Agency. Attendees receive a workshop
proceedings binder and ATC-20 documents.
