Residential architects who specialize in the hot, humid, southern climate

Disaster Service Workers

What does an Architect do in an emergency? 

If you are an architect certified as a Disaster Service Worker, like Jane and Michael, you help determine whether or not buildings are safe for occupancy after hurricanes. Last Spring, Jane and Michael took a course in Postdisaster Safety Evaluation of Buildings. Their credentials were issued by the State of California, because South Carolina does not have a comparable program, but the class was in Charleston and focused on windstorms, floods and earthquakes.
