FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE Commercial and residential building inspections will not be available from the City’s Building Development Services Friday, March 27 because the department’s inspectors will be participating in training led by the Missouri State Emergency Management Agency’s Structural Assessment and Visual Evaluation (SAVE) Coalition. The 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 enter and which should be evacuated. BDS asks the building and development community to plan accordingly to accommodate the inspectors’ attendance at this training session. The inspectors will resume their normal schedules Monday, March 30. For more information, please contact Chris Straw, director of Building Development Services, at 417-864-1059.
