This one-day workshop will cover practical ways that you can prepare your museum for future emergencies.  Whether you are at risk for a flood, hurricane, earthquake, or a leaking roof, there are important steps you can take now, through planning and mitigation strategies, to protect your collections and buildings.  Anyone responsible for stewardship of collections in a museum, library, archive, or historic site should attend.
A lead trainer from the American Institute for Conservation Collections Emergency Response Team (AIC-CERT) and an AIC-CERT team member from your region will lead presentations, discussions, and interactive exercises to help you build knowledge and tools to prepare for emergencies.
Small institutions will gain valuable knowledge of disaster preparedness and response and will also establish a relationship with a regional AIC-CERT team member before an incident occurs. The program will include an overview of risk assessment and mitigation, emergency planning, and salvage of damaged materials.

Topics will include
*   Risk Assessment and Mitigation
*   Emergency Planning
*   Conducting a Response
*   Drying Techniques
*   Setting Salvage Priorities
 *   Locating and Using Emergency Resources
