NHERI Disaster Structural Research Updates with Dan Zehner

designsafe-radio-logo-NHERIDan Zehner is back with us from the Design Safe Radio Podcast to give us updates on what they’re doing to research and create better and more resilient building materials. Dan works with the Natural Hazards Engineering Research Infrastructure (NHERI) program, funded by the National Science Foundation, which catalyzes advances in natural hazards engineering research.

Dan brings us some the latest updates in building materials design and testing to keep our communities safe and resilient in the face of disasters. In addition to testing of structures and structural materials, NHERI facilities test natural forces and events to better understand the phenomena at work in these events. The NHERI facilities are scattered in colleges and university research centers around the country. Each of them focus on specific types of events and structural components.

Here’s some more about those facilities: www.designsafe-ci.org/facilities/experimental

Also on the show this week were co-hosts Sam Bradley and Jamie Davis, along with Dr. Joe Holley from Paragon Medical Education Group and our disaster weather expert Kyle Nelson.

Paragon Brings “The Experience”

Paragon Medical Education Group specializes in bringing what they call “The Experience” to jurisdictions around the country. They bring together police, fire, EMS, and hospital teams to train together and learn what to expect from each diverse group in the response team so that each knows what to expect from the other and how to back the other groups up. Visit Paragon’s site at ParagonMedicalGroup.com for more information on how this can be brought into your system.
