Heritage Emergency National Task Force, the folks who brought us the “Emergency Response and Salvage Wheel” and lots of other helpful advice and information, has a new page up on their site called Current Disaster Information , which gathers together many resources aimed specifically at dealing with damage from hurricanes and other powerful weather events and natural disasters. The page also has a section where cultural institutions can submit damage reports and request assistance, along with the capability to view reports/requests already submitted. Also, look for the free, downloadable “Guide to Navigating FEMA and SBA Disaster Aid for Cultural Institutions,” a little farther down the page. This is a rich site, and deserves a close look at the many resources they have provided. Thanks, Heritage Emergency TF!
