Disaster Preparedness

Is your museum prepared for a disaster?  What should you do if you learn that a hurricane is heading your way?  What actions should you take if a violent individual enters your building?  Whether or not you already have answers to these questions, the resources on these pages should provide you with some new thoughts on how to tackle the preparation, planning, and appropriate, effective response to both natural and human-made disasters.  We’ve organized our resources into two categories: Natural Disasters and Human-Made Disasters.
