The Safety Assessment Program (SAP) utilizes volunteers and mutual aid resources to provide professional engineers and architects and certified building inspectors to assist local governments in safety evaluation of their built environment in the aftermath of a disaster. The program is managed by Cal OES, with cooperation from professional organizations. SAP produces two resources: SAP Evaluators, and SAP Coordinators, which are local government representatives that coordinate the program. Cal OES issues registration ID cards to all SAP Evaluators that have successfully completed the program requirements.

Professionally registered engineers, geologists, licensed architects, certified building officials and inspectors, and PW inspectors with Division IV certificates will receive a State-issued Cal-EMA ID card and are eligible for reimbursement when deployed. All others will receive a certificate and be issued an ID card when they obtain credentials.
