Since its founding in 2018, the Structural Extreme Events Reconnaissance (StEER) Network has assumed a critical role in documenting the performance of the built environment following natural hazard events, as well as in assessing the impacts on community resilience. This webinar provided an overview of the National Science Foundation-supported StEER network and featured speakers from the StEER Leadership Team. Attendees learned more about StEER’s community-led approach to reconnaissance and its protocols for systematic, coordinated field observations of the built environment in wind, seismic, and coastal hazards. Specific topics included:
- StEER’s event response workflow and supporting technologies;
- member engagement through field and virtual structural assessment teams;
- the role of data standards in delivering well-documented, quality controlled data suitable for diverse re-uses; and
- the impact summary for a cross-section of StEER event responses
Please watch this recorded webinar if you are interested in learning more or getting involved with StEER as a member!
