CALBO/Cal OES Safety Assessment Program Update – Updated Maps

Our communities depend on certified building and safety professionals, licensed architects, and licensed engineers to identify and mitigate anticipatable hazards in our built environment.

As certified building inspectors, plans examiners, and building officials, as well as licensed architects and engineers, our roles in a post-disaster environment shift from mitigating, to limiting post-disaster emergency shelter needs and expediting post-disaster recovery for our communities.
