National Earthquake Technical Assistance Program classes offered

The Mississippi Emergency Management Agency has been approved through the National Earthquake Technical Assistance Program (NETAP) and the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) to host two training courses in our state. 

One class is a combo course titled FEMA P-154 Rapid Visual Screenings of Buildings for Potential Seismic Hazards (Pre-disaster) and ATC-20 Post Earthquake Safety Evaluation of Buildings (Post-disaster). The second course is FEMA E-74 Reducing the Risks of Nonstructural Earthquake Damage and it addresses nonstructural issues found in schools, office buildings, retail stores, hotels/casinos, data centers, hospitals, museums, etc.  This is a great opportunity for free education targeted towards a wide ranged audience of building officials, engineers, architects, business owners, emergency managers, risk analysts, volunteers, etc. We are looking for at least 35 participants for each course.
