Welcome to ROVER 2, Rapid Observation of Vulnerability and Estimation of Risk (ROVER) Version 2 Mobile Software Server.

The ROVER 2 server automates the procedures in two de facto national standards for pre- and post-earthquake building safety screening and evaluation: FEMA 154, Rapid Visual Screening of Buildings for Potential Seismic Hazards, A Handbook, 2nd Edition, and ATC-20-1 Field Manual: Postearthquake Safety Evaluation of Buildings, 2nd Edition.

It is essential that users of ROVER 2 be trained in the evaluation procedures in FEMA 154 and ATC-20-1, because of the liability associated with life-safety evaluation of buildings.

Additional information about training on these procedures is provided in the FEMA ROVER 2 User Guide.

The User Guide and the software suite are included on the FEMA P-154 ROVER CD available from the FEMA Publications Warehouse (1-800-480-2520).

The FEMA 154 document and ROVER 2 software were developed by the Applied Technology Council (ATC) for the Federal Emergency Management Agency under the National Earthquake Hazards Reduction Program (NEHRP).
