Prevention, Preparedness, Reaction, Recovery: the mantra of
emergency planning is worked through in this intensive one-day
course which will ensure that you are able to plan for, and mitigate
the effects of an emergency.

The course uses the trainer's extensive experience of responding to
real incidents to demonstrate how planning can minimise the impact
of emergencies in libraries and archives, as well as outlining the
practical steps to take when responding to situations. With
reference to case studies, the course includes strategies for
dealing with damage, an emergency decision-making exercise and a
hands-on salvage exercise. By the end of the day, participants will
be able to:

    Identify the key issues that an emergency plan needs to address
    Give examples of the decisions to be made when responding to an
    Source salvage equipment to build a disaster kit
    Process a variety of wet items

The course is suitable for people responsible for writing or
updating emergency plans and emergency response team members.
