Emergency Preparedness & Response: Identifying Supplies & Shaping Your Team
Florida Humanities and the Florida Association of Museums Foundation (FAMF), in partnership with FEMA’s Heritage Emergency Task Force, Florida Division of Emergency Management, Conservation Center for Art & Historic Artifacts and the Society of Florida Archivists, are producing a series of training webinars designed to enhance the emergency planning capacity of cultural institutions across Florida.
This free interactive webinar is the third of a 6-part series that will walk your organization through creating, updating and implementing your Emergency Plan. This program includes interactive group breakout sessions and a healthy Q&A.
A current and adequate supply of emergency response and recovery materials and equipment can make the difference between minimal damage and complete disaster. Identifying who in your institution will take on specific response roles is vital as well. This presentation will:
*discuss various types of response and recovery materials
*help you create a basic supply and equipment list
*show you how and where you can procure the necessary items
*walk you through the various response roles and how to fill them
This program is funded in part by Florida Humanities, through supplemental funding from the National Endowment for the Humanities to address post-disaster relief.
