TNSAVE is conducting post-disaster structural evaluation training. Our goal is to have 7000 trained inspectors. If you want to help people in their darkest hour using your professional training and experience, we invite you to sign up for TNSAVE and become certified by taking one of our upcoming classes. 

TNSAVE is comprised of professional organizations whose objective is to help the Tennessee Emergency Management Agency (TEMA) develop and maintain a post-disaster building inspector program. TNSAVE serves TEMA and the State of Tennessee to train and organize building inspectors for disasters such as earthquakes, tornados and floods. TNSAVE Members are usually engineers, architects, building inspectors/enforcement, or other construction and design professionals with an interest in serving following a disaster. 

To be eligible to volunteer to perform building evaluations for TEMA following a disaster, you must have taken our training or an approved alternate within the last 3 years. Here is information about upcoming trainings:

TNSAVE will be hosting four training sessions in 2024!  Final dates and training locations will be announced once confirmed.  Registration links will be provided soon.  Virtual attendance opportunities will be available for February, September, and November classes.
