Before Disaster

Assessment and Emergency Planning


Disaster Pocket Plan

An important outcome of the 2009-2010 planning grant is for Kansas to achieve a maximum number of cultural heritage institutions completing a simple disaster pocket plan for emergency response.   Please view the models below, and draft your own institution’s pocket plan.

Disaster Plans


Supplies, Services, and Experts


Every year, libraries, archives, and museums set aside May 1 to participate in MayDay, an initiative to protect our cultural heritage from disasters. Every May 1, do at least one thing to further emergency preparedness in your institution. The resources on this website will help!
