BAPNet - Bay Area Preservation Network
presents a symposium on
Lessons of a Records Disaster:
The 1995 Contra Costa Courthouse Fires
In August and September of last year, three courthouses in Contra Costa
County, California, were devastated by arson fires. Partly due to the
lack of sprinkler systems, the disaster cost the County and its insurers
millions of dollars in document recovery costs. Many permanently
valuable files were lost forever.
This conference assembles experts in fire protection, disaster planning,
materials conservation, records management, and archives to conduct a
postmortem on this tragic experience.
We invite librarians, archivists, records managers, conservators,
firefighters, related professionals and policy makers, and the public to
attend this forum.
Speakers: Ronny J. Coleman, California State Fire Marshal, Judith
Fortson, Hoover Institution Library Director, Nancy Zimmelman, California
State Archives, Charles Sabah, C.A. Sabah & Co. , Bob Westby, former
Contra Costa County records manager, Susan Ping Wong, County of
Santa Clara, Sheryl Davis, Inland Empire Libraries Disaster Response
Network, and David Gaynon, Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory.
Where: Ed Roybal Auditorium, Oakland, Calif., Federal Building

DIRECTIONS TO THE OAKLAND FEDERAL BUILDING
The new Oakland Federal Building, located on Clay between 12th and
14th Streets, is an imposing twin-towered structure in the heart of
downtown Oakland. Because parking is scarce and fairly expensive,
and rush-hour traffic in and out of the area is difficult, we strongly
recommend taking BART, which stops within two blocks of the Federal
Building at 12th St. and Broadway. Please be sure to bring a photo I.D.
for entry to the building.
On BART: Take BART to the Oakland City Center-12th Street station.
