It's well known that a coordinated response is critical in a disaster situation. Without coordination, imbalances will occur in actions and communications, thereby hampering your response and recovery.
The purpose of the webinar is to introduce attendees to the benefits of having a one page disaster plan, which contains information such as the duties of an emergency response coordinator, critical contact information, communications and continuity of operations plans, a succinct list of response procedures, and a relocation strategy.
Our guest speaker, Dan Wilson, will talk about creating a game plan for any type of disaster. At the conclusion of the webinar, attendees will receive a template of the one page plan, which can then be adapted to the environment of any type of library.
This 90 minute webinar is the second in a two-part series of emergency preparedness webinars sponsored by Region 1 of the Network of the National Library of Medicine. The first webinar, Less Ostrich, More Owl: Five Steps to Quickly Improve Your Library's Ability to Deal with a Sudden Disaster, focuses on responding to sudden disasters, whereas One Page, One Mind: Creating a One Page Plan to Promote a Coordinated Response to a Disaster, is broader in scope.
