CAFM hosted the HURRIPLAN/PER-306 Class at Fort Trumbull in New London, CT on May 12th and May 13, 2016. The “Hurricane Resilient Community Planning and Building Design” class was taught by representatives of the National Disaster Preparedness Training Center at the University of Hawaii. Training modules included Introduction to Hurricane Science; Design Strategies Against Wind, Water, and Debris; Infrastructure Failure; Current and Suggested Building Codes; and FEMA Guidelines, Best Practices, and Lessons Learned. The course was targeted for a broad cross-section of professionals involved in emergency management, planning, building and zoning enforcement, mitigation, development, and engineering as well as building managers and owners. Approximately 30 people attended the course!
Thank you to Connecticut DEEP for providing the classroom facility. CAFM hopes to provide future training opportunities through the NDPTC.
