Emergency Preparedness Webinar Now Available
In last weeks webinar, Emergency Preparedness Basics: Getting Started, DHPSNY Archives Specialist Amelia Parks pulled from her experiences as a born-and-raised West Coaster—always on guard for a variety of unforeseen natural events—as she explained the steps institutions should take to safeguard their collections. The webinar is packed with helpful information for collecting institutions, including advice on how to conduct a thorough risk assessment, detailed tips for compiling emergency and disaster plans, funding and emergency services resources, and much more.
DHPSNY’s webinars address emerging issues and best practices, with content scaled to apply to small- and medium-sized organizations with limited resources. Webinar topics are more narrowly-focused, with more opportunities for questions and responses, as well as community building across the state. Webinars are recorded, archived, and made available for download from DHPSNY’s Resources page. See below for descriptions and registration for upcoming webinars.
