NDA to introduce Disaster Response Program at 38th Annual Convention in Las Vegas

from NDA

The National Demolition Association will be introducing the association's new National Disaster Response Program March 7 at the 38th Annual Convention at The Mirage in Las Vegas. This new association initiative is designed to provide the nation with access to demolition companies interested in responding to large natural or man-made disasters. The NDA intends to set-up a national database of member companies available to respond to large events similar to the terrorist attacks of 9/11 and hurricane Katrina. The goal is to be able to identify interested member firms that can provide equipment and manpower in a timely manner.

The NDA intends to set-up an 800 number that disaster response coordinators on the federal and state level can access to alert demolition companies to their needs. The NDA hopes to provide qualified second response capabilities on a national basis for large disasters while assuring prompt payment and limited liability.

NDA past President Tom Robinette of Robinette Demolition, Inc. of Oak Brook Terrace, Ill., his general superintendent and former NDA Safety Committee Chair Jerry Myrick and RDI's emergency response team coordinator will present the new program following NDA President Ray Passeno's State of the Association address March 7 in the Mirage Exhibition Center at the association's 38th Annual Convention. Mr. Robinette, Mr. Myrick and Mr. Stahr designed the NDA's Disaster Site Worker Training & Certification Program developed as part of the association's OSHA alliance. more
