Cooperative Community Emergency Response and Recovery Town Hall

Presented By: LYRASIS

Description: There are many examples of cultural heritage organizations working with emergency management agencies to create community-wide networks that support joint planning, response and recovery. These partnerships also foster emergency readiness amongst the individual members of the network. Regardless of whether the disaster affects just one building or multiple states, these networks have been successful. Yet, every network is unique. Individual communities have developed their networks in a variety of ways to address political, organizational, and geographic issues. These meetings will focus on how local planning can lead to successful regional disaster response and recovery efforts.
