    Course Summary: 

    The Texas Historical Records Advisory Board (THRAB) invites participants to develop an Emergency Preparedness and Response Plan for their archival repositories with a free webinar series launching May 20. Over the course of five weeks, professional consultant Rebecca Elder of Elder Cultural Heritage Preservation will guide participants through the step-by-step process of creating an Emergency Preparedness and Response Plan for their archival repositories. Each 90-minute webinar will focus on components of building a plan, with the final installment an opportunity to assess draft plans and review potential implementation concerns. The topics are as follows:

    Week 1: Emergency Planning Basics and the Emergency Team
    Week 2: Risk Assessment and Choosing a Plan Template
    Week 3: Contact Lists and Salvage Priorities
    Week 4: Procedures, Supplies and Implementation
    Week 5: How Did It Go?

    Registration is for the series. Please note that week two covers risk assessment, which would typically require access to the repository. Those not able to make on-site visits because of COVID -19 may need to address the more specific details of this module at a later date.

    To register:

    Support for this project provided by the National Historic Publications and Records Commission (NHPRC), the funding arm of the National Archives.
