MT State Library Fall Workshops 2015 - presented by Jo Flick, MT State Library and Robin Suzor, MT Department of Health and Human Services/Emergency Medical Services for Children
This three hour training introduces disaster preparedness to Montana library staff, and explores the important role that libraries can play in a community's disaster response. Libraries assess their readiness and practice using a table top exercise as training to develop greater awareness. Practical information about procedures and players in a disaster response is revealed. A case study of the response of libraries in New Jersey to Hurricane Sandy reveals some of the assistance that libraries were found to be uniquely qualified to provide in that large-scale, long-term response and recovery.
