Atlanta Heritage Emergency
The Heritage Emergency Response Alliance (HERA) is an affiliation of institutions and individuals interested in preserving the cultural heritage in the metro Atlanta area and serving as a resource to cultural institutions around the state. Click here to read more...
The primary aim of HERA is to mitigate the loss of cultural heritage in the event of a disaster. We are a group of curators, archivists, librarians, preservation specialists, conservators, emergency management personnel, disaster recovery vendors, safety and security staff, and anyone with an interest in protecting cultural institutions.

HERA is planning a spring program on April 25, 2012 at the Woodruff Library on the Emory University Campus. Katy Malone of ArtsReady.org will speak about her organization’s program, a web-based emergency preparedness platform designed for arts and cultural organizations. Following this presentation will be a discussion on the various types of fire suppression systems commonly used. Chris Paton, Archivist at the John Bulow Campbell Library of Columbia Theological Seminary, will elaborate on the FM-200 system. Staff from the Georgia Archives and Emory University Libraries will also share their experience with the Ansul Sapphire system.
