Dear Ruth, Thankyou for your submission and thoughtful approach. One thing that jumps out at me immediately is that in my experience lay persons can not always see a lean or tilt or misalignment as effectively as an Engineer to whom it may be glaringly obvious. A spirit level and straight piece of timber could be used against each wall, or plumb line of course to assist the identification of such structural defects. Also where possible , video footage via mobile phone technology may help, as well as of course any video conferencing. I appreciate this may not reflect the resources available at point of use in emergency situations, as no doubt telecomunications and energy supplies are usually effected. Any further comments much appreciated, Regards Pauline RedR
