Simplified Seismic Assessment of Detached, Single-Family, Wood-Frame Dwellings (FEMA P-50) incorporates a Simplified Seismic Assessment Form for national application. Evaluation of a dwelling using the Simplified Seismic Assessment Form enables an inspector to assign a Seismic Performance Grade for the dwelling and identify portions of the dwelling in need of retrofit. Seismic Retrofit Guidelines for Detached, Single-Family, Wood-Frame Dwellings (FEMA P-50-1) includes specific guidance for retrofitting a dwelling’s seismic deficiencies (identified using the FEMA P-50 Simplified Seismic Assessment Form) and potentially improving its Seismic Performance Grade.
