The Disaster Response Alliance stands ready to mobilize code officials, engineers and others

With hurricanes making headlines again, the International Code Council and the National Council of Structural Engineers Associations (NCSEA) remind their members, stakeholders and affected communities that the Disaster Response Alliance maintains a national database of skilled, trained and certified building safety professionals who are standing by and ready to assist communities in need. Federal, state, local, tribal and territorial entities may request assistance online. The Disaster Response Alliance has assembled a cadre of skilled code officials, engineers and others from across the country who are willing to assist with post-disaster safety assessments, building damage assessments, inspections, and provide surge support for other code-related functions. The Disaster Response Alliance brings together skilled, volunteer second responders in one place for easy access and quick mobilization.
