FREE WEBINAR & CEH CREDIT
Asset Management provides agency/owners both a long-term roadmap toward better supervision of asset inventories, as well as data necessary for logical material placement and usage. This information allows agencies to make sound engineering decisions backed by years of data, which in turn improves resilience of the infrastructure system and maximizes sustainability. In this session we will discuss the current issues and actions that impact such decisions in critical locations such as evacuation routes, flood prone areas, emergency access routes, and others. We will explore how asset management data can be used to help prepare for recovery from major natural disasters, and to determine the most appropriate mitigation planning.
- Understand which locations are critical in your community and create a list before disaster strikes can help plan for faster recovery.
- Understand the current federal requirements for evacuation route planning and design.
- Discover how an engaged asset management program can help to build resilient transportation infrastructure which will respond well to ever increasing threats while leading to emergency preparedness.
This is a FREE 30-minute webinar provided by the Florida Concrete Pipe Association (FCPA) and will provide attendees with 1/2 Continuing Education Hour (CEH) towards their Florida PE. License.
Resources from Past Webinars and Seminars
Description: Industry experts, Marc Mattox, P.E., Town of Paradise, CA, and Dr. Ricardo Medina, P.E., SGH, discuss considerations for fire-prone areas including community preparedness and evacuation route planning. Hear key learnings from the 2018 Camp Fire and the importance of resilient infrastructure. Learn about the resiliency based ASTM design standard for culvert and storm drainpipes exposed to wildfire events.
In the recording, you will hear firsthand the findings from the 2018 Camp Fire and learn about its effects on roadway culverts. Additionally, you will gain insights on the process and workings the California Regional Quality Water Control Board in their efforts to replace 66 extensively damaged high-density polyethylene (HDPE) and corrugated metal pipe (CMP) culverts with reinforced concrete pipes (RCP).
After attending the webinar the attendee should be able to:
- Learn about the infrastructure failures caused by the devastation of the Camp Fire in Paradise, CA
- Understand what key infrastructure considerations need to be taken for fire-prone areas.
- Discover what the Town of Paradise is doing to help mitigate future disasters.
I-85 Tanker Fire
In February 2020, a tragic fuel spill impacted I-85 in Atlanta. In addition to the fatality, the combustion of spilled fuel threatened the roadway infrastructure. Watch the news story below. Fortunately, the concrete pipe system was resilient to the fire, as confirmed through CCTV inspection.
