Disaster response and salvage training
Tuesday 18 June 2013
The British Library Centre
96 Euston Road, London NW1 2DB
This intensive course focuses on preparing for disaster response and salvage. The course uses experience of responding to real incidents to demonstrate how planning can minimise the impact of emergencies in libraries and archives as well as outlining the practical steps to take when responding to situations. With reference to case studies, the course includes strategies for dealing with damage, an emergency decision-making exercise and a hands-on salvage exercise. By the end of the course, participants will be able to:
- identify the key issues that a disaster plan needs to address
- give examples of the decisions to be made when responding to an incident
- source salvage equipment to build a disaster kit
- process a variety of wet items.
Previous attendees commented that they had learnt ‘How much there is to think about when dealing with a disaster and how to prioritise actions.’ and ‘Importance of preparedness. Tips for emergency kits and for small scale incidents. How to assess what we can cope with ourselves and when to call in help.’
The day is led by Harwell Document Restoration Services.
