Mission Statement:

NCBIA’s Disaster Assistance Response Team may be one of the first safety evaluation teams to arrive in the event of a natural or man-made disaster. The Team will be conducting rapid evaluation inspections generally requiring 10-30 minutes for each property. The team would be responsible for determining quickly if a building is safe enough to occupy, and if not, to decide what restrictions to place on its use or re-entry. The results of the inspection will be documented and an appropriate placard placed near the entrance to the building that indicates the building is Unsafe (RED), Restricted (YELLOW), or safe to occupy (GREEN). Additionally, the information collected on damaged structures will be utilized to assist property owners and communities in their recovery efforts.
