Disaster response workbook

From: Pete Jermann <pjermann>
Date: Thursday, May 30, 1996
The revised edition (1994) of the Western New York Disaster
Preparedness and Recovery Manual for Libraries and Archives is now
available online as an HTML document at

The manual is a sourcebook for developing individualized disaster
plans. It contains basic information concerning disaster planning,
assigning collection priorities, protection of collections,
emergency preparedness, and response and recovery procedures.  Lists
of disaster services, service providers, supplies and suppliers are
included (note: many of these suppliers are local to Western New
York though some national disaster services are listed).  There is a
worksheet section consisting of forms to be filled in with local
information such as floor plans, names of disaster team members,
fire detection and suppression equipment, and in-house resources.

The workbook was originally prepared by the Regional Disaster
Preparedness Committee of the Western New York Library Resources
Council (WNYLRC)as part of a New York State funded grant project. In
1994 a subcommittee of the WNYLRC Preservation Committee revised the
manual.  The current online version is an HTML adaption of the 1994
revision and has been placed online through the efforts of the
WNYLRC Preservation Committee.
