For a more in-depth and practical look at writing a disaster plan, we suggest the educational video series called “Writing a Disaster Plan” created by the Collections Care Network of the American Institute for Conservation (AIC) in 2015. This is the first video in the series that can be found on AIC’s YouTube Channel.
Developing an emergency plan for a collection is an important yet intimidating task. There are many different ways to approach it, and professional resources are available to help you. We think this reference guide created by the American Alliance for Museums is a great place to start!
