Establishing and Maintaining Emergency Supply Caches

Ever wonder what the process of setting up an emergency supply cache entails? Rachel Onuf from the Vermont Arts & Culture Disaster Resilience Network (VACDARN) and Adrienne Berney from North Carolina's Cultural Resources Emergency Support Team (CREST) will discuss establishing and maintaining supply caches to support regional response efforts.

Rachel Onuf is the Director of the Vermont Historical Records Program, based at the Vermont State Archives & Records Administration, which seeks to improve public access to and engagement with Vermont historical records and to encourage and facilitate collaborative efforts among Vermont historical records repositories. She serves as a co-lead of the Vermont Arts & Culture Disaster and Resilience Network (VACDaRN), a director of the Collections Care & Conservation Alliance, and as a member of the Northeast Document Conservation Center Advisory Committee. 

Adrienne Berney has coordinated the N.C. Department of Natural & Cultural Resources’ Cultural Resources Emergency Support Team (CREST) since 2015. With a background as an objects curator, she joined DNCR in 2010 as a preservation specialist with the Connecting to Collections project and led regional collections care and disaster preparedness workshops statewide. She currently serves as Outreach Coordinator for the State Archives and continues field services to local history organizations through the Traveling Archivist Program and the Federation of N.C.
