ICC Credits:  0.15    ICC Course # TBD
Wednesday, Sept. 29
10:30 am to 12 Noon
Instructor:  David Lind

In almost all areas of this country, commercially used buildings are required to be inspected by the fire department.  Most buildings are going to inspected annually.  Perhaps your city, town, village or county does this more or less frequently.  These inspections are typically performed by a Fire Inspector, Fire Marshal or Fire-fighters.
 

This class will provide information and documents that will help your businesses proactively prepare for a fire inspection by understanding many of the common things these inspectors will be looking at and asking for.  The documents that will be discussed are comprehensive.  However, it cannot possibly identify every possible thing a Fire Inspector may look for.  Why?  Every occupancy is different, i.e., a grade school will have different inspection items than a restaurant.  People operate and use their businesses, buildings or spaces different than someone who has a similar business.

FP9   FEMA’s QuakeSmart Business Inspections Program – National Roll-Out
ICC Credits:  0.1    ICC Course # TBD
Thursday, Sept. 30
8:00 am to 9:00 am
Instructors:  Ines Pearce/Steven Peavey
1.0 Hour

Earthquakes are a real threat to all businesses, especially small ones, many of which have not taken steps to prepare. This lack of readiness can have detrimental impacts not only on the businesses, but the cities/towns that serve them and the communities at large. A better prepared private sector helps first responders to focus assets where they are needed most and can shorten long-term community recovery timelines.

Fire inspections are the one time of year businesses are open to reviewing their facilities to learn what may be unsafe. FEMA’s QuakeSmart program combines annual fire inspections with assessing businesses’ earthquake risk. During inspections, owners learn how non-structural and structural hazards may interrupt their operations, cause injuries and how to fix them. The QuakeSmart program brings inspection forms and useful earthquake mitigation information directly to small businesses. The solutions to many of the most impactful hazards are low cost to implement, and businesses are also provided the information to determine how to address their more serious or costly earthquake risks. After developing the QuakeSmart approach, materials, and training followed by pilots in multiple California fire departments, we are now expanding across the country.
 

QuakeSmart also includes a recognition element for businesses and the communities. We are looking for leaders in the fire service – Join us to hear about QuakeSmart and how to expand to your local businesses, helping them protect lives, operations, and their valuable contribution to your community.
