Preparedness for Hurricane Isaias

As received from the Emergency Programs Coordinator at the American Institute for Conservation/Foundation for Advancement in Conservation:

Hurricane Isaias’ path is very uncertain and the storm may intensify, so we urge all those on the East Coast potentially impacted by the storm to take precautions and prepare now. It’s also important to consider how COVID-19 may impact your emergency plans. You can find resources on personal preparedness here: https://www.ready.gov/hurricanes
Cultural heritage institutions, the National Heritage Responders are available 24/7 for remote assistance: 202-661-8068. Please share the hotline information with colleagues in potentially impacted areas. NHR also offers tip sheets on response and recovery: https://bit.ly/2zbMLbi

In particular, take the time to review your plan now, before an emergency happens. If you don’t have a plan, please review the guidelines for personal protection and emergency planning on the Department of Homeland Security website:

For your institution and collections, start exploring tips and streamlined guidelines on
