Below you will find several resources related to the Building Inspection and Resource Deployment framework for CAPSTONE-14 including information on the Missouri SAVE Coalition, Resource Typing, and Mission Ready Packages.
Missouri SAVE Coalition
The Missouri Structural Assessment and Visual Evaluation (SAVE) Coalition
is a group of volunteer engineers, architects, building inspectors and other
trained professionals that assists the Missouri State Emergency Management
Agency with building damage inspections. After a disaster, SAVE volunteers
are trained to move quickly to determine which buildings are safe to use
and which should be evacuated.

Building Inspection Resource Typing
Resource typing is categorizing, by capability, the resources requested, deployed and used in incidents. Measurable standards identifying resource capabilities and performance levels serve as the basis for categories. Resource users at all levels use these standards to identify and inventory resources.

Mission Ready Packages (MRP)
MRPs describe specific response and recovery resource capabilities that are organized, developed, trained, and exercised prior to an emergency or disaster. Mission Ready Packages may be considered the next logical step in the evolution of resource typing, as they include elements found within resource-typed definitions, but they also detail such information as the missions supported, estimated cost of the mission, location of the resource, limiting factors related to the mission, and logistic support requirements.
