Alliance for Response Pittsburgh has been planning its 2012 schedule. The first of two spring programs is scheduled for April 20 at the University of Pittsburgh’s Thomas Boulevard Library Resource Facility. Participants will be given a tour of Pittsburgh’s 911 Operations Center followed by a group meeting. A second meeting is scheduled for May 4, which will focus on AFR Pittsburgh’s shared disaster supply cache.
AFR Pittsburgh has also launched a Web site where visitors will find information on upcoming meetings, minutes from past events, and details on membership.
In November 2011, AFR Pittsburgh held their fall meeting at The Mattress Factory Art Museum. The group toured the museum’s archival storage area and offered advice. In addition, the group learned about winterizing collections.
