On October 25, the AIA Baltimore Disaster Assistance Committee and Baltimore Chapter of Architecture for Humanity helped sponsor an evening workshop with MEMA, the Maryland Emergency Management Agency, just days before Hurricane Sandy struck the region. While neighboring states were hit harder than we were here in Baltimore, our Maryland coastline suffered much damage in the wake of the storm. At times like this we as architects wonder what we can do to help in a time of need.
In lieu of our traditional monthly happy hour, we will be having our monthly AfH meeting at the MEMA Workshop on "An Architect's Role in Disaster Response" on Thursday, October 25. For more information on the workshop, please see the AIA Baltimore website: http://www.aiabalt.com/displaycommon.cfm?an=1&subarticlenbr=112
On Thursday, October 25, the AIA Disaster Assistance Committee, in partnership with the Baltimore Chapter of Architecture for Humanity, is hosting an evening workshop with MEMA, the Maryland Emergency Management Agency. This workshop will inform participants about how an architect can help with disaster assistance on a state level. It will be held at the MEMA Headquarters in Reisterstown and include a tour of the facility. The workshop will start at 6pm and end around 8pm. For directions, please visit the MEMA website: http://mema.maryland.gov/Pages/directions.aspx
On October 18, twelve states and the District of Columbia will be the sites of a coordinated earthquake preparedness drill and AIA National, along with Architecture for Humanity, are encouraging architects to get involved.
By visiting www.shakeout.org anyone can commit to participating in their own small way by conducting an earthquake drill in their office, creating or revising emergency plans, or simply taking a moment to recognize the seismic hazards in your immediate area.
The Baltimore Chapter is organizing a "Green Apple Day of Service" with Highlandtown Elementary/ Middle School. The Green Apple Day of Service is sponsored by the USGBC Center for Green School. This is a volunteer event in which people from around the world will come together to support healthy, sustainable schools by taking action in the local communities.
