Next week you will have the opportunity to discuss your disaster preparedness with Northern States Conservation Center's emergency preparedness instructor, Terri Schindel:
MS 002: Collection Protection Are You Prepared?
Instructor: Terri Schindel
Dates: November 14, 2007 at 11 a.m. Eastern Standard Time (US)
Location: www.museumclasses. org
Disaster planning is overwhelming. Where do you start? Talk to Terri about how to get going. Use her check list to determine your level of preparedness. What do you already have in place? Are you somewhat prepared? What can you do next?
Participants in Collection Protection will read literature sent to them a few days before the chat and complete a checklist before joining a one-hour chat to discuss disaster preparedness at their institutions. Each student should read course materials and prepare questions or comments to share with the other students in the chat.
This is a one-day expert's forum and takes no more than 10 hours of a student’s time.
