The California Office of Emergency Services (CalOES) Safety Assessment Program (SAP), hosted by NCSEA, is highly regarded as a standard throughout the country for engineer emergency responders. It is one of only two post-disaster assessment programs that will be compliant with the requirements of the Federal Resource Typing Standards for engineer emergency responders and has been reviewed and approved by FEMA's Office of Domestic Preparedness. Based on ATC-20/45 methodologies and forms, the SAP training course provides engineers, architects, and code-enforcement professionals with the basic skills required to perform safety assessments of structures following disasters.  Learn more.
