   (a)   In the event an emergency, as that term is defined in Section 1102.02(e)(8) of the Codified Ordinances, is declared as the result of circumstances producing structural damage to buildings in the City, the City Manager shall form a damage assessment team or teams to evaluate buildings and post a placard on such damaged buildings as determined by their condition:
 
“Checked OK For Habitation”  This placard (Green) shall be placed on a  building or structure to identify a building with some damage to its structure and suspected damage to contents and that the building is usable without repairs.
“Needs Repairs Before Habitation”  This placard (Orange) shall be placed on a building which is damaged and may be used under limited conditions, and may be restored to service with repairs.
“Condemned as Dangerous & Unsafe”  This placard (Red) shall be placed on a building which is totally uninhabitable and beyond repair.
 
   (b)   Once a placard is placed on a building pursuant to the City Manager’s order, no person shall remove, alter or cover such placard or permit such placard to be removed, altered or covered until the placard is removed pursuant to a subsequent order of the City Manager.
