Rally was asked to provide damage assessments using the API 579-1 fitness-for-service methodology. Rally developed API 579 Level 1 Fire Damage Assessment check sheets, for use in the field when performing inspections. Additionally, the field team utilized cameras to take pictures and videos documenting the findings to support and complement the analysis performed at each location.
Location assessment reports were completed for each site inspected. Each report documented the observations noted from field notes and from review of the pictures and videos. The report also indicated recommended actions, when applicable, for follow up and/or repair. Additionally, each location assessment report and documentation was sent to a certified API-579 inspector. This was to provide independent verification of the completed assessments.
