WESTPAS, the Western States & Territories Preservation Assistance Service, is offering training to help institutions such as libraries and museums prevent, prepare for, respond to, and recover from a disaster. RMTD has partnered with WESTPAS many times in the past and this is great risk management training for anyone. While the course is designed for libraries and museums, the information is ideal for anyone with library or museum materials of any type. You do not need to represent an official library, museum or related institution to attend. Everyone is encouraged to register for this valuable training made available through funding provided by the National Endowment for the Humanities.
This free training is offered May 20th in Bozeman and pre-registration is required. See the attached flier for registration instructions and contacts for assistance and additional information.
A great resource for art emergency prep and recovery….
My thermometer read -11 degrees this morning and the office parking lot is well-plowed but still icy in spots. I finally pulled out my real winter coat and snow boots.
In my email in-box this morning I found a nifty link from my co-worker. This is Montana’s Disaster and Emergency Survival Guide. It has some good things about winter survival and travel.
As many of you know, earlier this fall my family was placed on “evacuation notice” due to a wildfire on MacDonald Pass so the section on evacuation planning will be of real importance to me. I thought we were well prepared but I can see some places for real improvement.
