Training for Emergency Preparation and Response for Humanities Collections

The establishment of a new Alliance for Response (AFR) network in Oklahoma City; the delivery of training for a regional response team associated with AFR’s existing network in Georgia; the creation of continuing education webinars on emergency preparation and response for 27 existing AFR networks; and the building of web-based resources to include a new Forum Planning Guide and other key tools.

The Foundation of the American Institute for Conservation of Historic and Artistic Works (FAIC) proposes to improve emergency preparation and response for humanities collections by creating a new Alliance for Response network of cultural leaders and emergency managers in Oklahoma, training a regional volunteer response team for cultural collections in Georgia, and providing nation-wide training and resources for existing Alliance for Response networks. A large portion of the existing Heritage Emergency response team training, now conducted primarily through face-to-face instruction, would be adapted for online delivery, resulting in lower costs and less travel time for participants, and making the training more easily reproducible for other locations in the future.
