Event Name:
Emergency Preparedness Plan Preparation

Emergency Preparedness

Description: Developing emergency preparedness plans and training staff to respond accordingly to an emergency is growing in importance.  Emergency planning for libraries must grow beyond the protection of the libraries' collection.  The goal of a progressive emergency plan should include the safety of staff, patrons, property, the environment, as well as, the collection.  This session will introduce and reinforce strategies to accomplish these goals.
Learning Objectives:
  • Fundamentals of emergency planning
  • Developing emergency training modules for staff
  • Understanding the importance for sustainable and resilient thinking in the planning
