Training Tragedy Triage
Structural engineers teach how to evaluate building safety after disasters.
Dealing with Disasters. After large-scale disasters involving buildings, bridges, and critical urban infrastructure, assessing the damage and safety of our infrastructure is one of the most important first steps to disaster recovery. ATC -20 and ATC -45 are the de facto standards for post-disaster safety evaluations of buildings. Reid Middleton regularly leads ATC -20/45 training for cities, counties, public agencies, federal government, and colleges and universities. Having a passion for earthquake and disaster-resiliency, Reid Middleton’s structural engineers’ enthusiasm makes these classes engaging and informative for the participants.
