On February 24th approximately 60 interested engineers and architects came to the SGH office for the second workshop in a series to introduce volunteers to the project and to recruit them to help develop estimates for individual cities.
The presentations at this workshop covered the pilot cities of Long Beach, Berkeley, San Francisco and Alameda, where Dave McCormick described his success in using the Sanborn maps to identify older concrete buildings. Presentations are available online here.
People interested in volunteering can check the map and see what cities currently have volunteers here.
Dave McCormick of SGH and SEAONC will be coordinating volunteers in Northern California. Further information is available from Marjorie Greene at firstname.lastname@example.org.
