Hurricane Tabletop Drill

Using Hurricane Isabel as the scenario, we just had performed a tabletop drill with our webmaster. The focus of the drill was on resource access and communication under the following circumstances: 1) just the Library is out of power, 2) the entire region is without power, and 3) the entire region is without power and the hospital is operating under generated power.

As a result of the drill, here are a couple of things that we will be working on this summer:

  • Developing a WordPress blog that will provide emergency information. Postings from this blog will be activated on our Library’s home page in the event of a disaster.
  • Utilizing a PDA phone as a multi-functional communication devise (phone, IM, and WordPress web page editing) in the event of a disaster.
