Dealing with Devastation
Educating Municipal Leaders about Disasters
The course we created for Pennsylvania municipal leaders helps prepare them to handle disasters in their communities. After a series of nine educational modules, local government leaders know how to declare a disaster, assess damage, evaluate flood damage, issue permits and handle inspections, and facilitate temporary federal housing and communicate with residents. The course was created in partnership with subject matter experts from the Pennsylvania Municipal League and sponsored by The Governor's Center for Local Government Services. d'Vinci also created an interactive eLearning course featuring an avatar building inspector to educate inspectors about Act 40, the Manufactured Housing Improvement Act.
