Building a Disaster Response Network:


Who and What Cultural Heritage Institutions Need to Know to be Ready

Floods, Tornadoes, Hurricanes – oh my!

All of these natural disasters (and more!) have occurred in Connecticut recently!  Many cultural institutions have been affected by them, and all of them needed assistance to get back on their feet again – in the form of money, manpower, and morale.  We all need these things to get through a disaster . . . But do you know how to find them?

What did you do?

When these storms were coming, did your site know how to prepare?  Did they know who to call if there was a problem or damage?  Did you have enough supplies?  Did you have the right supplies?  Whether you have a formal disaster plan, or your plan involves crossing your fingers, you need to attend this program!

Why do I need to attend?

You and your colleagues are invited to one of five FREE programs to meet the people in Connecticut who can help you and your institution when disaster strikes! You’ll receive a FREE package of disaster readiness resource materials, including important phone numbers to have on hand, and information about what supplies to have on hand.  This is also an opportunity to meet others and share ideas about disaster response – the more we share, the we’re prepared!

Where and when is this happening?

This program will be repeated five times around the state.  Join us at one of these host sites:
