Disaster Preparedness for Cultural Institutions

  • 8:30 AM - 12:30 PM
  • Fairmont San Jose, San Jose, CA
Hosted by the Western Museums Association

This timely workshop identifies the most common threats experienced by museums, and the most practical strategies for emergency management. Most small to mid-sized museums have little or no budget to pay for outside planning assistance. This session walks managers through cost-effective, practical steps to mitigate threats. Attendees learn how to prepare for any emergency and orient staff to properly address the protection of staff, visitors, volunteers, collections, and facilities.

$50 including a copy of the new Safeguarding Cultural Properties publication
