Heritage Preservation’s Emergency Response and Salvage Wheel now a Mobile Application

Heritage Preservation’s Emergency Response and Salvage Wheel is now available free of charge on the iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad as the “ERS: Emergency Response and Salvage” app.

 
Long known as the authoritative resource for salvaging artifacts after a disaster, the Wheel has been used by museums, libraries, and archives around the world. This new app makes the Wheel’s invaluable guidance accessible to anyone who is in need of practical advice for saving collections in the first 48 hours after disaster strikes.
Apple users can download this free app from the App Store. Simply search for “ERS: Emergency Response and Salvage” or use this link: http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/ers-emergency-response-salvage/id513081280?mt=8 To download, your device must run iOS 5.1 or later. Complete technical requirements are available on the ERS page at the App Store.

The original slide-chart Wheel was created by Heritage Preservation, a national non-profit organization dedicated to preserving the cultural heritage of the United States. It has been translated into six languages and distributed internationally in more than 40 countries. The original Emergency Response and Salvage Wheel, sponsored by BELFOR , is still available for purchase in the Heritage Preservation bookstore:  https://www.heritagepreservation.org/catalog/Wheel1.htm
