Are You Ready? Testing Your Disaster Plan and Furthering Collaboration to Improve Disaster Preparedness for Collections

Are You Ready? Testing Your Disaster Plan & Furthering Collaboration Among Heritage Institutions To Improve Disaster Preparedness for Collections

Will you disaster plan work in a real disaster situation?  It’s better to find answers now the after a disaster has occurred!  Attend this workshop to help heritage institutions – libraries, archives, museums, historical societies, etc. – improve disaster preparedness and response for collections.

This workshop will:

  • Help you assess your vulnerabilities
  • Test your plan using a scenario table top exercise
  • Explore how collaborations can help you respond to a disaster
  • Build a shared vision for regional disaster preparedness

Requirements for attendance:

  • A written disaster plan (draft okay) that includes collections response/recovery
  • A letter of institutional commitment to explore collaboration to optimize preparedness
  • A completed 3-page vulnerability assessment (distributed 3 weeks before the workshop)

This workshop is FREE – just your time, energy, and institutional commitment are required.
