The flooding that regularly hits Pennsylvania brings numerous challenges for local leaders. In particular, municipalities have to deal with the cleanup. That means having flood-affected properties assessed to ensure that they are structurally sound and safe to live in. This interactive training module will address a number of issues that municipalities dealing with devastation need to know about, including permits required for damaged properties, how the Uniform Construction Code applies to temporary housing and shelter, and how to connect with useful resources. This training will also explore the roles of the municipality, the county, state and federal governments in responding to natural disasters.
