Disaster Response and Recovery: A Hands-on Intensive
2019 Collections Care Training Series
Thoughtful preparation for an emergency or disaster is one of the most important steps that a cultural institution can take to safeguard collections. This program will increase practical knowledge through hands-on salvage of a simulated disaster. Participants will use the Incident Command System while learning to salvage a variety of materials, including paintings, wooden furniture, glass/metal/ceramic objects, textiles, paper, photographs, and books. Personal safety, initial site assessment, object triage and tracking, and post-disaster debriefing will also be addressed.
