This 2-1/2 day seminar provides participants with skills, knowledge, and tools to help them become a Disaster Response Inspector. Participants will learn the ICC Disaster Response Process, which will enable them to respond to a disaster site prepared to interface with the onsite command structure and become a resource in identifying unsafe buildings and uninhabitable structures. Throughout this interactive course, participants will have the opportunity to practice skills and receive practical information and tools that can be used at the disaster site. Participants as Disaster Responders will be able to respond to a disaster site, prepare to become a resource to that jurisdiction and to identify buildings in accordance with the ICC, ATC and the Authority Having Jurisdiction’s guidelines. Upon completion of this seminar, participants will be better able to: explain the role of the of the National Incident Management System; prepare for mobilization prior to a disaster; execute site mobilization procedures; conduct a site inspection; estimate damage by percentage of structure or by dollars per square foot; post standardized notices and/or alternative notices; and, communicate with affected persons at the disaster site.

On the morning of the final day, instruction is designed to integrate the information obtained in the When Disaster Strikes seminar with the state and local response network to better utilize the tier two responder in the field. At the end of the program, the student will better understand the role of the code official in the building evaluation team and the documentation requirements dictated by the state and local government agencies.

Participants are required to complete pre-work (which will be provided by the ICC) prior to attending the training. At the conclusion of the second day, participants will be given a Proficiency Exam. If a participant passes, they will be issued a Certificate of Proficiency. Participants will need to bring a Wi-Fi-enabled laptop to the training course.
