Establishing Emergency Response Networks - Webinar (09/18/20)

 NEFLIN is proud to partner with LYRASIS to bring you a series of four webinars on Disaster Preparedness! 

You do not have to enroll in all four, but we highly recommend that you do so. Seating is limited to 25 in these webinars, so get your place now!

Disasters big and small can affect buildings and the collections they hold at any time. In the crucial first hours, you shouldn’t have to worry about whom to call for assistance.

This class examines how to set up a local emergency response network that will help protect your cultural institution when an emergency strikes and establish mutual assistance and reliance amongst the other institutions in your area.

NOTE: Only those who pre-register for this webinar will have access to the archived recording.
