WJ: Hurricane Preparedness and Response

Wednesday, October 21, 2009 (1:00 PM - 2:00 PM) Export to vCalendar
Where:   WJ Webex Room (Web Conference/Webinar)

As hurricane season approaches, libraries are looking for ways to be better prepared for disaster response and recovery. Join guest presenter Joe Ryan, manager of a new project that identifies and collects key service roles, best practices, tools and resources to make better use of public libraries for hurricane and disaster preparation and recovery. The Florida-based project helps libraries reprioritize disaster and recovery efforts to address the needs of the broader community through partnerships with fellow responders (emergency management, local government and other agencies) and to become a safe haven, a recovery center, information hub and evacuee resource. Come learn how this project can inform your library’s disaster preparedness plan and how your library can play an important role in community preparedness and recovery
