GaINing Ground in Georgia

Tuesday, April 20th, 2010

From Rita Smith, Outreach & Education Coordinator, Mercer University Medical Library:

On April 15th, a full day of emergency preparedness planning was offered to 30 members of GaIN, the Georgia Interactive Network for Medical Information. GaIN is centered at the Mercer University Medical Library in Macon, Georgia, with members representing a variety of healthcare and educational institutions across Georgia, including many small rural hospitals. Carolyn Klatt, the Georgia state coordinator for NN/LM emergency preparedness, led an excellent session on the “10-Step Approach to Emergency Preparedness Planning,” which was followed by an interactive planning scenario and discussion of “buddy” agreements using the Memorandum of Understanding and Mutual Aid Agreements available at the NN/LM Emergency Preparedness & Response Toolkit website. Participants also received samples of the Pocket Response Plans (PReP) developed by the Council of State Archivists, along with waterproof envelopes in which to store their own plans.

10 Steps in Manhattan

Friday, April 16th, 2010

The “10 Steps” roadshow visited the Middle Atlantic Region (MAR) of NN/LM at New York University’s medical center on Monday and Tuesday this week.  While our number was small, the quality of the feedback we received and the ideas that were generated were excellent.  Kate Oliver, Associate Director of the MAR, and her staff welcomed us for updates and the 10 Step “train the trainer” session on Monday, then a special session on Tuesday, working with two of their EP state representatives, Sue Ben-Dor and Mary Lou Glazer, on developing Pocket Response Plans for hospital libraries.  We benefited from learning about possiblilities for networking and support in MAR, and we hope the session created some interesting ideas for follow-up by MAR members.  Thanks to Kate and her staff for their hospitality, and we look forward to hearing great things from MAR this year.
