Building Codes for Mitigation: Using ASCE 24

On Thursday, January 25, 2018,  FEMA’s Hazard Mitigation Assistance (HMA) Division delivered a webinar to share information on the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) 24 Building Codes for Mitigation. Presenters provided information on ASCE 24 flood-specific building code requirements as they relate to Hazard Mitigation Assistance, including information about mitigation projects such as elevations, floodproofing, and mitigation reconstruction. Participants who would find value in this webinar include floodplain administrators, city and building code officials, insurance adjusters, and others who have an interest in understanding and applying ASCE 24 requirements.
