Help the Concrete Coalition with a Virtual Sidewalk Survey

If you have an hour or two, any time night or day, you can help the Concrete Coalition with a new project. The Coalition is extending its data set of pre-1980 concrete buildings in San Francisco. Volunteers are needed to do a “virtual sidewalk survey.” The Coalition will provide you with street addresses. You will use Google Street View™ or Bing Streetside™ to visit the address, take a screenshot photo, give it a name, and dump it into a dropbox folder. You can spend 10 minutes or 10 hours — totally up to you.

If you are interested, please send an email ASAP with “CC Volunteer” in the subject line to maggie@eeri.org. Thank you!

The Concrete Coalition

The Concrete Coalition is a network of individuals, governments, institutions, and agencies with shared interest in assessing the risk associated with dangerous non-ductile concrete buildings and developing strategies for fixing them.

With the help of volunteers from our Chapter, SEAONC and others, information is being gathered about the number and types of pre-1980 concrete buildings that exist in the state of California with the goal of quantifying the risk represented by these older concrete buildings.

More information about the project can be found at the Concrete Coalition website: http://www.concretecoalition.org/
