The Safety Assessment Program (SAP) utilizes mutual aid resources and volunteers in the form of professional engineers, architects, and certified building inspectors to assist local governments by doing post disaster building evaluations. The program is managed by the California Governor's Office of Emergency Services (CalOES) with cooperation from professional organizations, including SEAOC. CalOES will issue Disaster Service Worker (DSW) ID cards to all professionally licensed volunteers who have completed the training. Those who are not yet licensed will just receive a certificate and may contact CalOES upon licensure to receive the DSW ID card.


The purpose of the CalOES Safety Assessment Program (SAP) is to help local government perform post earthquake, wind, flood, and blast safety evaluations as quickly as possible. The post-earthquake evaluation is based on the ATC-20 document developed in 1987. SEAONC's Disaster Emergency Services Committee has sponsored trainings on a regular basis (typically every other year) since then. The training program has evolved and improved over time and currently enjoys a reputation for excellence. Past participants have commented especially on the value of the afternoon case studies, which are led by SEAONC members with post-earthquake safety evaluation experience.


Attendees who are licensed professionals (Civil, Structural, or Geotechnical Engineers; Architects; Geologists; Certified Building Inspectors) may apply for and obtain Disaster Service Worker identification cards issued by the CalOES. Attendees receive a workshop proceedings binder and ATC-20 documents.
