DISASTER RESPONSE AND SALVAGE

Monday 16 January - Monday 16 January 2012
(Categories: Non ICOM/ICOM-CC)

DISASTER RESPONSE AND SALVAGE Hits : 103


Date: 16 January 2012 Place: London, UK


This intensive half-day course focuses on preparing for disaster response and salvage. The course uses experience of responding to real incidents to demonstrate how planning can minimise the impact of emergencies in libraries and archives as well as outlining the practical steps to take when responding to situations. With reference to case studies, the course includes strategies for dealing with damage, an emergency decision-making exercise and a hands-on salvage exercise. By the end of the course, participants will be able to:


- identify the key issues that a disaster plan needs to address - give examples of the decisions to be made when responding to an incident - source salvage equipment to build a disaster kit - deal with a variety of wet items.


Previous attendees commented that they had learnt ‘how much there is to think about when dealing with a disaster and how to prioritise actions’, 'the importance of preparedness, tips for emergency kits and for small scale incidents, and how to assess what we can cope with ourselves and when to call in help'. The day is led by Harwell Document Restoration Services.
