ACEC-NH & NH Mutual Aid Meeting: Natural Disasters (New Date!)
November 29 @ 9:00 am - 10:00 amFree
Dear ACEC-NH Member Firms:
Many communities in NH have recently experienced damage to their infrastructure from natural disasters such as rain and windstorms. During these emergencies many smaller communities reach out to entities like NHDOT, the NH Department of Safety and the NH Public Works Mutual Aid seeking professional assistance from private engineering firms.
Currently, no list of engineering firms willing to assist NH towns in these emergencies exists. As a result, ACEC-NH has been asked to create and host a list of engineering firms that would be willing to quickly respond to NH towns on an as needed basis during emergencies. When completed, this list will be shared with relevant state agencies and NH towns. This list will be updated on an annual basis.
The communities are seeking help with damage assessment, temporary repair ideas, permitting, etc. Most of these communities are small and have not done a lot of work with engineering firms.
The firms who would be included on this list are expected to be responsive and available as a resource to the communities immediately following a natural disaster.
ACEC-NH will be hosting a Teams meeting on Wednesday, November 29th from 9am to 10am with NH Mutual Aid to discuss this list and the process of assisting communities during an extreme weather event. All member firms interested in being on the disaster aid list are strongly encouraged to attend this meeting.
