SAP Disaster Assistance Training

The severe weather events in Dayton in May provided a wake-up call to AIA Ohio.  We need individuals in Ohio trained in the Post-disaster Safety-Assessment Program (SAP), ready to help when disaster strikes.  The SAP training will provide Ohio’s architects with the knowledge to provide evaluations of facilities and buildings in the aftermath of a disaster.
