DISASTER PLANNING FOR CULTURAL COLLECTIONS
Presented by the Conservation Center for Art & Historic Artifacts
CHICAGO, IL – MAY 3, 2011
The Newberry Library
Chicago Area Conservation Group (CACG)
ABOUT THE PROGRAM
Emergencies don’t have to become disasters! Participants in this one-day program will learn how to safeguard their collections by preparing for the unexpected. Sessions will address:
§ Assessing vulnerabilities
§ Disaster planning
§ Crisis communication
§ Evaluating and mitigating risks to staff and collections
§ Prioritizing collections
§ Working with first responders before disaster strikes
In addition, there will be a disaster scenario exercise and interactive sessions on the “exercising” of disaster plans and staff training.
This program is intended for staff charged with collections care, including executive directors, librarians, archivists, curators, collections managers, conservators, stewards of historic house museums, and for staff responsible for the safety of collections and buildings, such as site, security and facility managers.
To encourage institutions to register staff involved in both collections care and safety and security, CCAHA is offering a reduced registration fee to a second participant from the same institution.
