Please join us at our next code discussion group in August. This session will be the part 2 of the egress topic. The discussion will focus on the components of an accessible means of egress. It will include the requirements for elevators, areas of assisted rescue, areas of safe refuge, and stairway and floor identification signs.  

We HIGHLY encourage all attendees to watch Part 1 as Sue Moe delves deeper into the topic and provides lots of insight on the topic of accessible means of egress. On-demand recording can be found on your dashboard.

This discussion session is NOT a lecture, so come prepared with your code book and be ready to apply the code provisions to real-world examples.

You will be divided into random breakout groups. Each breakout group will have 25 minutes to discuss a scenario guided by a CASI facilitator. Then, we will reconvene, and a representative from each breakout group will have up to 5 minutes to present the scenario, any discussions/debates, and the group interpretation of the applicable codes.

Scenarios addressing the following aspects of code will be discussed:

  • The requirements for providing elevators as a means of egress.
  • The requirements for providing an area of safe refuge.
  • The requirements for providing an area of assisted rescue.

One (1) continuing education credit is offered for a maximum of one hour of live attendance for DSA CASp certification renewal and the California Architects Board License Renewal for Disability Access Requirements. These credits are self-reported.

The Discussion Groups are available FREE to CASI members only. Registration is required.

Webinar information to join the discussion group will be sent out the day prior to the scheduled session date.  The discussion groups will be recorded and archived in the member dashboard for those who cannot attend the live session.
