New CE Course on Disaster Preparedness

Deborah Halsted and Julie Page have been putting together a new CE course on disaster preparedness. They will be teaching the class on October 20th at the South Central Chapter of the MLA annual meeting in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Here’s a description of the class:

Before Disaster Strikes: Essential Steps in Disaster Preparedness

When the pipe breaks, the fire starts, or the hurricane hits, what will you do? The effectiveness of your response and the success you have in restoring services and collections will be the result of how well you have prepared. Learn what you should do and who should be involved before faced with a disaster, in order to protect people, prevent damage, and provide the best possible outcome.

The course will cover the following:

  • Key steps in disaster preparedness
  • Building collaborative relationships
  • Components of a disaster plan
  • Preparation of a Pocket Response Plan
  • Group exercise in response to a scenario
  • “Exercising” your plans; staff training and drills
