    What do you do when the lights go out?
  • 2. Disaster statistics:Is Your Component Ready?
    Natural disasters are actually more prevalent than you might think. Take a look at some of these facts and figures – they may surprise you.
    There were 63 natural disasters declared in the U.S. in 2007
    There were 2,018 fatalities and 5,326 injuries related to weather events from 2005 to 2006
    Of the total catastrophe losses (from 1986 to 2005) in the U.S., 47.5% were related to hurricanes and tropical storms.
    At least 41 states are considered at moderate to very high earthquake risk
    On average, there are 800 tornadoes each year in the U.S. Tornadoes have occurred in all 48 continental states.

  • 16. Lesson’s Learned:
    We were not proactive, only reactive.
    What can we do to be better prepared in the future:
    Assessment training before the need arises
    Better organized; i.e.: supplies and materials on hand, having maps available.
    Having a “pool” of trained architects ready to provide assistance and safety assessments.
    AIA/Mississippi
  • 17. Lesson’s learned:
    Ann Somers, AIA worked to co-author the “AIA Handbook for Disaster Assistance Programs”
    Ann was the president of AIA/MS at the time Hurricane Katrina hit the MS Gulf Coast.
    Ann continues to assist in the training and development of architects to respond in the event of a disaster; most recently in Tuscaloosa, AL.

  • 18. The AIA’s Comprehensive Response System
    When disasters occur, we typically speak of three
    phases:
    Emergency
    Relief
    Recovery
    In order to sustain an efficient response, Disaster Preparedness must be at the center of operation
    AIA/Mississippi
  • 19. What is it?
    AIA’s systematic approach to provide assistance following a disaster.
    Establishment of a standard in response to safety assessments.
