Architects group has trained volunteers to help with safety inspections in disasters


The Iowa Chapter of the American Institute of Architects and the Iowa Department of Homeland Security and Emergency Management have signed an agreement that allows trained AIA Iowa members to deploy to disaster locations and perform building inspections in areas affected by natural disasters, AIA said in a news release. As of March 4, AIA Iowa has 26 trained and certified volunteers on the specialty team who can be deployed to disaster zones when the need arises for building safety inspections. The partnership “gives our members a unique opportunity to serve the public while supporting our organization’s mission: to advocate for the health and safety of the public,” Jessica Reinert, AIA Iowa’s executive director, said in a prepared statement.
