                hire qualified engineers to create facility-specific              SEC
                post-disaster inspection plans and allows these
                engineers to become automatically deputized as
                City/County inspectors for these buildings in the
                event of an earthquake or other disaster. This
                program allows rapid reoccupancy of the buildings.
