VT Strong: Disaster Preparedness and Response in Vermont

Participants will view a video on the effects of Hurricane Irene on Vermont‘s libraries and the services Vermont libraries provided to their communities hit by the storm.  Afterwards, Jackie Calder, Vermont Historical Society Curator, will review the recent history of Vermont organizations working to assist cultural organizations with emergency preparedness, response, and recovery. She will discuss what resources are available and go over different approaches and questions that need to be considered when organizations are creating their emergency plans.
