PE-268745-20

Alaska Division of Libraries, Archives, and Museums (Juneau, AK 99811-0571)
Anjuli Grantham (Project Director: May 2019 to present)
Preparing Alaska's Cultural Organizations for Emergencies

Three five-month emergency preparedness training programs located across Alaska and targeting predominantly small, rural, heritage institutions.

This program will guide three cohorts of regional humanities practitioners through a comprehensive emergency preparedness and response training program. Each cohort will take part in a 5 month program that includes two in person workshops and an online course. At the end of the program, participants will have relationships with local and regional first responders and emergency managers, completed a comprehensive written disaster plan, conducted risk assessments at their institutions, and practiced salvaging collections materials damaged by fire, flood, and earthquake. The program is attuned to the realities and needs of small collecting institutions in the remote corners of Alaska and is planned to ensure both the participation and success of humanities practitioners from across the breadth of Alaska, the nation's most disaster prone state.
