Emergency Preparedness: Resources


Many states and counties have emergency preparedness guides please research those specific to your area. These guides can help plan for an emergency and provide emergency resources beyond FEMA to assist you.



There are approximately 30 networks across the country that bring together cultural institutions and local emergency responders.  Alliance for Response has been effective on many levels: encouraging institutions to complete disaster plans and train for emergencies; creating cooperative disaster assistance networks among museums, libraries, archives, and historical properties and sites; raising awareness of the importance of cultural heritage in communities; and influencing official emergency policies and plans.



ArtsReady is a web-based emergency preparedness platform designed to provide arts and cultural organizations with customized business continuity plans. An initiative of South Arts, the program has different levels of membership to help organizations get started and become informed on the steps to take in case of an emergency.
