Every year, libraries, archives, museums, and other cultural organizations set aside May 1 to participate in MayDay, an initiative to protect our cultural heritage. Every May 1, the idea is to do at least one thing to further emergency preparedness in your institution. Check out our “recent posts” or “News” page for details!

The Kansas Cultural Heritage Emergency Resources Network is a website to aid libraries, museums, historical societies and any cultural heritage institution in preparing for and recovering from various disasters. This statewide resource guide is a replacement for KDRAN (Kansas Disaster Recovery Assistance Network, 1993-2009) in providing valuable annotated resources. KDRAN was a statewide network that encouraged institutions to develop their own disaster plans and to practice disaster prevention methods.
KCHERN does not provide immediate response assistance.
We welcome any comments and suggestions. Let’s all work together in protecting Kansas’s irreplaceable cultural resources from harm.
