Introduction to Disaster Planning and Cultural Resources
Speaker: Ione Stiegler, FAIA, Principal Architect, IS Architecture
Wednesday, October 31, 2012
Disaster Planning is something that has come up frequently in Southern California over the years, not just because of our location along fault lines and predisposition to earthquakes but also because of our climate and what that means for weather related disasters like drought, wildfires and flooding from intense rains. Learn why it's important to be prepared from the lessons learned with the Sikes Adobe in Escondido that burned in a wildfire after being restored and has since been reconstructed.

Disaster planning is part of the California mindset, not just because we live on fault lines and are predisposed to earthquakes, but also because of our climate and development in areas prone to disasters like wildfires and flooding.
Does your City or Historic Museum have a Disaster Plan in place? What are some of the typical and unique challenges that arrive in the event of a disaster? How can we prepare for such an event and protect historic structures? What are best practices from Cities that have experienced disasters, even devastating disasters. What is FEMA’s role in preparing us for such events, during an event and after an event? How does the State historic building code interface with structures and the respective engineers in the event of a disaster?
A panel of building officials, structural engineers, architects and FEMA representative will address these topics and more!
Who should attend:
Architects,Building Officials, Plans Examiners, Fire Prevention Officials, Building Managers, Planners, Historic Property Owners and Emergency Planning Officials.
