Are You Prepared? Come and Find Out!

On Tuesday, June 9th at 1pm Pacific we will be hosting the first of a series of 10 webinars on Adobe Connect covering the “10 Steps to Service Continuity” as outlined in the NN/LM Emergency Preparedness Plan.  Each month over the next 10 months we will host a session to cover one of the 10 Steps.  On June 9th, Gail Kouame, Regional Coordinator for Emergency Preparedness and Response will lead the discussion and interactive session on Step One: Risk Assessment.

Come find out what your library may be at risk for so that you can better prepare.  Take a quiz and add up your score to see where you stand in terms of area hazards such as earthquakes, volcanoes, rivers, and even construction cranes!

To join the webinar, go to: and login as a Guest using your own name.

Once in the web meeting a pop-up box allows you to put in your phone number and the program will call you. If this does not happen call the 800 number and use the participant code given in the Notes box (lower left-hand corner) on the screen.

    Hi Gail,
    This sounds like an excellent series. Will the webinar allow guests from BC – ie will the programme call a BC long distance number?

    Hi Cathy-

    Thanks so much for your interest. The way these work is that the web conferencing software will call you on your phone. Others from Canada have not had trouble in the past. Will look forward to hearing from you next week!
