The BCA Tool’s Seismic Non-Structural Module is capable of assessing the mitigation benefits for:
Which of the following is not a valid and reliable source for project cost estimate data entered in the BCA Tool?
When adding a structure in the BCA Tool, the Structure Name and State data fields are required.
After adding a project in the BCA Tool, other users automatically have access to the project and all the information associated with it.
In the BCA Tool’s Wildfire Module, the Value of Infrastructure data field is the economic value of assets that could be lost in wildfire such as bridges, water and wastewater infrastructure, or utilities. A reliable source for this information would be:
Regardless of the flood mitigation project type, flood elevation values for the 10-, 50-, 100-, and 500-year floods are needed to complete a BCA using the BCA Tool’s Flood Module.
Use of the BCA Tool’s DFA Module is required for all of the following situations, except:
In the BCA Tool, only one structure can be associated with a project.
In the BCA Tool’s DFA Module, aside from loss of function, additional documented damages can be added to the Damages Before Mitigation table to better capture a project’s damage-reducing potential.
In the BCA Tool’s Tornado Safe Room Module, the building performance of each Predominant Structure Type that safe room occupants would evacuate from determines:
When using the BCA Tool’s DFA Module, what is the minimum number of hazard events with known recurrence intervals required to complete a BCA?
Select the information needed to complete an analysis using the BCA Tool’s Flood Module:
Which functionality can you access from the BCA Tool’s Basic Navigation Toolbar?
To access the Help content inside the BCA Tool:
The two types of tornado safe room projects are:
The purpose of a hurricane wind mitigation project is to reduce damage to the structure by increasing its building performance.
Which of the following statements about the Justification/Documentation section in the BCA Tool is true?
When entering details about a project in the BCA Tool, users may override the FEMA standard value for the Discount Rate as long as it is supported by backup documentation.
The BCA Tool Home Screen has each of the following main sections except:
Because the BCA Tool’s Hurricane Wind Module calculates benefits based on improving a structure’s building performance against the hurricane wind hazard, correctly entering the building properties before mitigation and after mitigation is important.
Which statement below best describes the hurricane windspeed values in the BCA Tool’s Hurricane Wind Module?
During a seismic event, the softer the soil, the less the seismic waves are amplified.
The depth of flooding is the difference between the flood elevation and the First Floor Elevation.
The Quick Start Area of the BCA Tool shows the following sequence of steps for completing a BCA:
When overriding a FEMA standard value for a utility’s Value Per Unit of Service in the BCA Tool, documentation from the utility company should include the utility company’s letterhead.
For a building with an unfinished basement, the correct value to enter in the BCA Tool for the total size of building is the square footage of only the finished, habitable space.
Which of the following is not an eligible wildfire mitigation activity?
Use the Export BCA functionality to:
In the BCA Tool’s Wildfire Module, what would the default project effectiveness be for a project that includes both defensible space and ignition resistant construction?
In the BCA Tool’s Tornado Safe Room Module, key data inputs include the safe room occupancy and the predominant structure types that the expected safe room occupants will be evacuating from to get to the safe room.
