Disaster Planning and Response

Disasters are all too common in New York State. Each year, records are damaged and information is lost as a result of floods, arson, fires, collapsed roofs, or computer viruses. Participants will complete, as part of the workshop, a draft disaster plan that can become the outline of a final plan focused on the protection of their organization's permanent and vital records.

This workshop will explain:

  • How to judge your organization's risk of experiencing a disaster
  • How to reduce the chances that a disaster will destroy your records
  • How to prepare your organization for a disaster
  • How to respond to a disaster safely and effectively
Workshop Type: Classroom Training
Intended Audience: Historical Records Repositories, Local Governments
