We recruit code professionals and qualified assistants as disaster assistance volunteers who offer their expertise when disaster strikes.

The list of disaster assistance volunteers is made available to state and county emergency management officials and affected regional code officials. As a disaster assistance volunteer, you would be asked to provide assistance with life safety habitability for structures affected by a disaster.

As a volunteer, you will gain valuable experience in disaster management. Disasters can be overwhelming and the assistance you provide as a disaster assessment volunteer is valued.

Our agency continues to work cooperatively with the Association of Minnesota Building Officials to update and improve the Disaster Preparedness Manual for Building Officials. The Association of Minnesota Building Officials Disaster Mitigation Committee and our building code representatives meet regularly to review and evaluate the manual to provide guidance information for your disaster preparation.
