FLICC Meeting Announcement MA2001-15

Disaster Mitigation for Cultural Collections

Disaster mitigation should play a role in any institution's
emergency preparedness and planning efforts. The Conservation Center
for Art and Historic Artifacts (CCAHA)'s Disaster Mitigation
Workshop Series is designed to help institutions reduce the
probability of emergencies they can control, and limit the damage to
collections that results from disasters they cannot control. This
series will provide tools for assessing an institution's
vulnerability to disaster, evaluating fire prevention and suppression
strategies, and discussing health and safety factors related to
disaster.

Take one, two, or all three workshops. See details and descriptions

as librarians, archivists, curators, collections managers, stewards of

Although attending the entire series is not required, each workshop
supports your institution's vulnerability assessment process and
will strengthen its ability to minimize potential dangers to
collections and staff.

WORKSHOP DESCRIPTIONS

Be Prepared...Conducting a Vulnerability Assessment
May 14, 2001

In this workshop, participants will learn how to conduct a
vulnerability analysis and risk assessment so that they will be able
to evaluate the types of emergencies that might affect their
institution and its collections. This evaluation will help the
institution develop effective strategies to minimize the likelihood of
a disaster. The workshop speakers will also touch on the importance of
business continuity for cultural institutions. A crisis communications
expert will address public relations strategies for emergency
situations.

Speakers:
*Michael Trinkley, Chicora Foundation, Inc.
*Michael Smith, Assistant Professor, Department of Communication,
LaSalle University

Be Prepared...Fire Protection and Suppression
May 15, 2001

Critical to the selection of an appropriate fire protection and
suppression system is the assessment and analysis of the hazards and
risks faced by a collection. This workshop will focus on the need to
review current fire protection procedures and systems in historic and
cultural institutions. The goal of the workshop will be to equip
participants with up-to-date information to make informed decisions on
fire prevention and suppression.

Speakers:
*J. Andrew Wilson, Assistant Director for Fire Protection and Safety,
Smithsonian Institution
*Nicholas Artim, Director, Fire Safety Network

Be Prepared...Assessing Health and Safety Risks
May 16, 2001

This workshop will alert participants to the health and safety risks
present at the time of an emergency, including air quality, fire
safety, electrical hazards, structural instability, chemical and
biological hazards (mold, lead, asbestos, contaminated water and
soil), pests, and those hazards inherent in collections themselves
(arsenic, formaldehyde). The workshop will also address the
psychological stresses faced by those in an emergency and the health
and safety issues faced at the time of collection acquisition.

Speakers:
*Monona Rossol, President, Arts, Crafts, and Theater Safety, Inc.
(ACTS)
*Pam Hackbart-Dean, Southern Labor Archivist, Georgia State
University
*Katherine K. Dibble, Director of Public Services, Boston Public
Library
