Rapid Damage Assessment Program

BC Housing’s Rapid Damage Assessment Program trains community members and Emergency Social Services personnel in safe, effective damage assessment following an earthquake. The courses teach the basic skills to identify unsafe conditions in wood frame and concrete construction caused by earthquakes. Individuals are shown how to assess damage to determine whether buildings can be re-occupied. BC Housing’s rapid inspection skills are taught using the Applied Technologies Council 20 guidelines from California.

BC Housing provides for the delivery of Rapid Damage Assessment training. For more information on their course offerings, please visit their website at:

We are fortunate in our community to have four persons trained in Rapid Damage Assessment; unfortunately, most of those trained are firefighters and will likely be needed elsewhere. If you are interested in taking this training, please contact the Emergency Program Coordinator at 250-282-5512 or by email to epc@saywardvalley.ca
