In this training, participants learn how to identify potentially hazardous buildings before earthquakes occur, according to the methodology set forth in FEMA P-154, Rapid Visual Screening of Buildings for Potential Seismic Hazards. The training covers methods and processes that enable personnel to rapidly screen buildings for their expected safety and usability during and after earthquakes. Local officials can use these data to plan and prioritize further engineering and vulnerability analysis, emergency-response needs, and mitigation projects. The Third Edition of the document was completed in January 2015 and includes an additional level of screening form, as well as many other enhancements.
