Disasters happen. How we prepare for them makes all the difference in how quickly a library can get operations and collections back up and running. Gain essential understanding of effective emergency management strategies, including how to implement FEMA’s Incident Command System (ICS) into your library environment. ICS allows a library to operate in a disaster situation with a common organizational structure that facilitates management, planning, communication, logistics, and administration. This workshop will include active participation in a structured emergency management table-top exercise to learn and practice effective response strategies. Staff from the Emergency Management Institute will present on available resources.
