BICEPP BOARD MEETING - Safe-T-Proof (BICEPP Event)
Friday, March 3, 2017, 7:30 AM until 9:30 AM
Registrants & Fees
BICEPP is planning a short seminar after the regular board meeting, similar to what has done many times in the past. The session will begin immediately after the meeting ends, between 9:30 and 10:00 am.
The March 3 meeting will feature a "Train the Trainer" session on Non-Structural Earthquake Damage Mitigation.
This one-hour certification class will feature the best practices for identifying which items should be secured, and the engineered methods of anchoring Non-Structural systems and spaces inside buildings. Built on the mandated retrofit of California Hospitals, validated through first-of-its-kind shake table testing, and endorsed through the Federal Alliance for Safe Homes and the new FEMA QuakeSmart program for businesses, this straightforward approach to the do's and don’t's of earthquake fastening basics will make all attendees experts in this critical area of preparedness.
There is a competency test and certification included in the training.
