FEMA P-395, Earthquake Safety and Mitigation for Schools

July 22, 2015 - Helena, Montana

Taught by a professional structural engineer, this 4-hour course is designed for school officials, teachers, facility managers, and other stakeholders interested in reducing earthquake risks in local schools. Numerous school buildings located in multiple states and U.S. territories are vulnerable to earthquake damage that threatens safety and
continued operations. Attendees learn how to assess and analyze seismic risks;
how to develop actionable plans for reducing and managing these risks; how to
secure nonstructural elements of school facilities; and how to use “incremental
seismic rehabilitation” as an affordable approach for protecting existing
buildings and ensuring occupant safety. Topics will include:
• How to assess and analyze your earthquake risks
• How to develop an actionable plan to reduce and manage earthquake risks
• How to initiate an earthquake risk reduction plan for existing schools
that were not designed and constructed to meet modern building codes
• How to secure “non-structural” elements of the school facility
• How to apply “incremental seismic rehabilitation” to protect buildings
and ensure occupant safety
• Why “incremental seismic rehabilitation” is an affordable alternative
for school safety

FEMA P-154, Rapid Visual Screening of Buildings for Potential Seismic Hazards (pre-disaster), and
ATC-20, Postearthquake Safety Evaluation of Buildings (post-disaster)


Bozeman, Montana July 21, 2015 8:30 am – 5 pm
Butte, Montana July 23, 2015 8:30 am - 5 pm


FEMA P-154, Rapid Visual Screening of Buildings for Potential Seismic Hazards, provides instruction on how to identify potentially hazardous buildings before earthquakes occur. The training covers methods and processes that enable personnel to rapidly identify, inventory, and screen local buildings according to 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. This training is based on the third edition of the document published by FEMA in January 2015. Although some of the material remain unchanged from the Second Edition FEMA P-154 (published in 2002), the Third Edition provides major enhancements.
Training on the ATC-20, Procedures for Postearthquake Safety Evaluation of Buildings, provides instruction on rapid and detailed evaluation procedures for evaluating earthquake-damaged buildings and posting them as INSPECTED (apparently safe, green placard), LIMITED ENTRY (yellow placard), or UNSAFE (red placard). The training provides examples which allow attendees to evaluate building damage conditions, assess the overall risk from the damage, and recommend which of the three placards should be posted on the building. These evaluations and placards can be used in planning and executing evacuation, re-entry, and rebuilding strategies.
