MayDay 2014! Free Webinar on Incident Command System

Every year Heritage Preservation encourages libraries, museums, archives, historical societies, and preservation organizations to set aside May 1 to participate in MayDay. This year, make sure your institution is prepared! Any cultural institution submitting a brief description of its 2014 MayDay plans or accomplishments by May 31, 2014, will be entered in a drawing for disaster supplies donated by Gaylord Brothers.

Heritage Preservation is now offering its award-winning Field Guide to Emergency Response and Emergency Response and Salvage Wheel at special MayDay prices through May 31. David Carmicheal’s book Implementing the Incident Command System at the Institutional Level is also discounted in celebration of MayDay.

Join the Connecting to Collections Online Community, http://www.connectingtocollections.org/ics/, on Thursday, April 17, at 1:00 p.m. (Eastern), when David will present a free, hour-long webinar – The Supercharged Management System: Applying the Incident Command System in Cultural Repositories.

For project ideas, information on prizes, and the book sale, visit Heritage Preservation’s MayDay site, www.heritagepreservation.org/mayday. Polygon Group is the proud sponsor of MayDay 2014.

The Society of American Archivists (SAA) created the MayDay initiative in 2006 and promoted the idea to its members and allied organizations. The following year, the Heritage Emergency National Task Force and SAA expanded the concept to include all kinds of collecting institutions and historic preservation interests.
