Directory Lists Expert Civil Engineers Available For Disaster Response
November 8, 2007

When disasters such as Sept. 11th, Hurricane Katrina or the I-
35W bridge collapse occur, members of the civil engineering community often respond by offering their time and talents to assist in response and recovery efforts. In response to this interest, the American Society of Civil Engineers’ (ASCE) Committee on Critical Infrastructure developed the Disaster Assistance Volunteer Directory (DAVD).

The directory includes a listing of ASCE members who have expressed interest in volunteering for disaster planning, response and recovery initiatives. Members included in the directory can maintain an up-to-date profile that includes their skill set, experience and availability. This directory is available to qualified parties–including local, state and federal agencies, as well as private consulting firms–to draw from for engineering expertise in not only their post-disaster response and recovery efforts, but also in their pre-disaster planning and preparedness initiatives.

The directory is currently available for use and has more than 500 engineers registered, representing a wide array of areas of expertise. For more information please visit
