Disaster Planning. Often this is a
project that gets kicked down the priority list. But, what if your pipes burst
and your collections were soaked? What if there were a fire? What if coffee is dumped all over a portrait? What if an elderly volunteer fell?
Do you know immediately who to call
to save your photographs?
Does your fire chief know how to
get around your building and the value of your collection?
Do you have a phone tree so someone
in authority can get to your site in an emergency?
Do multiple staff or volunteers
have an emergency notebook at their houses with this information?
This 4-day workshop series will
include both presentations and hands-on activities that will help you be
better prepared in the event of a disaster.
