Event Details

The National Center for Preservation Technology and Training and the Cane River Creole National Historical Park will be holding a series of workshop this summer on disaster preparedness and response for collections in Arkansas, Mississippi, and Louisiana. The Delta Region faces natural disasters frequently from hurricanes, flooding, and tornadoes to name a few. It is important for the history of the area to ensure that the staff of these collections are prepared for natural disasters that frequent the area.

These day long workshops will cover the basics of pre-disaster preparedness and response for collections recovery and stabilization for artifacts and documents. The workshops are targeted towards small museums, collections and institutions in the Delta Region.

 

The topics discussed during the workshop will be:

-Historic Buildings

-Disaster Plans
