Recognizing that cultural resources are usually at the bottom of the
list, even if they make it to the radar screen, in the event of a
community-wide, regional, or state-wide disaster (Catastrophic one),
the Task Force has been working with the Massachusetts Emergency
Management Agency, FEMA, municipalities, and a number of other
state, local, and non-profit organizations to develop institutional
disaster plans and to educate and inform municipal emergency
coordinators on the need to protect cultural resources in the event
of a disaster.  A similar forum was held in Stockbridge, MA last
November and has been extremely successful in getting institutions
and the municipality to work together.
