13 December 2018 - FEMA P-593, Seismic Rehabilitation Training for One- and Two-Family Wood-Frame Dwellings
​TRAINING DESCRIPTION: The training on FEMA P-593, Seismic Rehabilitation Training for One- and Two-Family Wood-Frame Dwellings, promotes seismic retrofitting of one- and two-family homes to reduce earthquake damage and increase post-earthquake habitability.  Participants are introduced to the effects of earthquakes on wood-frame dwellings, common seismic vulnerabilities in these structures, retrofitting approaches, and available retrofitting guidelines. A primary objective of this training is to develop a common understanding of vulnerable building characteristics, seismic rehabilitation concepts, and rehabilitation priorities that will enable participants to carry on an informed discussion about the extent and cost of voluntary seismic rehabilitation work. This knowledge also prepares trainees to identify for homeowners which rehabilitation measures make most sense and offer the best value for homeowners’ investment.  Another objective of this training is to identify additional resources that are available for further reading on topics in seismic rehabilitation. TARGET AUDIENCE: The target audience for this training includes architects, building officials, business owners, contractors, emergency managers, engineers, home/property owners, and the general public. GENERAL INFORMATION: Time:  8:30 am – 4:00 pm

How Does Smart911 Work?

Smart911 allows citizens to provide the additional details that 9-1-1 call takers may need in order to assist them during an emergency. When you dial 9-1-1 today the information received by the 9-1-1 call center can be limited based on the type of phone you are calling on. With Smart911, anytime you make an emergency call from a phone registered with your Safety Profile, the 9-1-1 systems recognizes your phone number and automatically displays your profile on the screen of the call taker who receives your call.
