Disaster Response and Recovery:
A Hands-on Intensive


This workshop will be presented in five different locations. Registration deadline for each workshop is two weeks before workshop date. 

  • This program includes a hands-on disaster simulation and can get quite messy. Please be sure to dress accordingly.
      
  • Participants should bring a clipboard. 

Thoughtful preparation for an emergency or disaster is one of the most important steps a cultural institution can take to safeguard collections. This program will increase practical knowledge through hands-on salvage of a simulated disaster. Participants will use the Incident Command System while learning to salvage a variety of archival and library materials, including paper, photographs, audio-visual media, and books. Personal safety, initial site assessment, object triage and tracking, and post-disaster debriefing will be addressed. Participants will also learn about resources and services offered by local and regional emergency management agencies. Participants at all levels are welcome.

Presenters:
Amelia Parks, DHPSNY Archives Specialist
Gillian Marcus, DHPSNY Preservation Specialist

Time: 9:30 AM  – 4:30 PM
Lunch will be provided.
