Field Guide to Emergency Response

When disaster strikes, what will you do?

What actually happens may be very different from what you expect. Even with a plan, you'll need clear and practical advice to help you with initial response and salvage steps. You need the Field Guide!

  • Follow step-by-step instructions tailored to the scope of your emergency: what to do first, whom to call, how to prevent further damage.
  • Form a response team to deal with multiple tasks: working with emergency responders, assessing and documenting damage, ensuring health and safety of staff, and setting up a salvage operation.
  • Stabilize your collections with advice from professionals on handing the most common types of damage from water, mold, corrosion, pests, and other threats. A companion DVD shows you how! See previews of the DVD.
  • Customize handy checklists for your institution and find vital conservation resources.
