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

Institute for Conservation of Historic and Artistic Works, in
partnership with Filoli and the National Trust for Historic
Preservation (NTHP).  This program is funded in part by a grant from
