Is your museum struggling to find the time and resources to perform risk evaluation and/or develop an emergency plan? This course is designed to help you overcome those challenges through lectures, readings, assignments, and discussion. Those who wish to do so can finish the course with a completed emergency plan for their institution.
Upon completion, participants will:
Understand the basic principles of emergency preparedness for cultural heritage institutions.
Define the Incident Command System and explain its importance.
Determine salvage priorities.
Understand the principles of risk assessment.
Be able to apply the FAIC’s REPP tools to their own institution.
Choose an appropriate emergency plan template and apply it to their own institution.
Implement the plan in their own institution, including training their staff and keeping the plan updated.
Dates: January 15th - March 8th
Participants will meet live over Zoom each Tuesday between January 18 and March 8, 2022, from 10-11 a.m. ET. These live sessions will be dedicated to discussion. Participants will be expected to review the weekly recorded lecture and any readings in advance of each discussion session.
Registration fee: $125
