  • The goal of the California Emergency Management Agency (CalEMA) Safety Assessment Program (SAP) is to help local government perform accurate facility safety assessments as quickly as possible. This will allow people to use safe homes and businesses, and ensure that people are prohibited from entering unsafe structures after a disaster. SAP Evaluators survey damaged facilities to determine if there are safety hazards to building occupants or to the general public. SAP Evaluators also provide recommended posting of placards that denote the condition of each structure evaluated. This full-day Evaluator Training class trains civil engineers, architects, and building inspectors to do field evaluations of buildings and other infrastructure for safety. It includes the most currently updated curriculum prepared by the California Emergency Management Agency (CalEMA), practical examples of post-disaster field conditions impacting structural safety, assessing the degree of severity, posting, and barricading procedures.

  • QUALIFIED PARTICIPANTS (individuals must be certified as a licensed Architect, Engineer, Building Official, Building Code Official, Master Code Official, Building Inspector, Combination Inspector, Residential Building Inspector, Residential Combination Inspector, Building Plans Examiner, or Combination Plans Examiner) will receive the Disaster Service Worker Emergency Response Team card. Possession of this card is required in order to participate in emergency CALBO call-out operations (photos of each participant will be taken and a loyalty oath is part of the in-class registration process).


  • Dean Vlahos, FAIA is an Architectural Expert Consultant to the legal profession in preparation for Expert Testimony for Mediation, Arbitration and Litigation involving Architect's Standard of Care, Construction Industry Inter-relationships, Building Envelope Design and Analysis and Construction Technology.

He has successfully completed a wide range of building types including: hospitals, schools, auditoriums, commercial, justice, laboratory, correctional, single and multiple family facilities totaling over 10 million square feet of building program space, at an approximate construction value in excess of $9 billion.
