The Getty Conservation Institute published Building an Emergency Plan in 1999 to aid leaders of cultural institutions in creating an emergency plan.

This guide focuses on developing a team-based emergency preparedness and response plan.

Organized into three parts:

Part I guides directors in the planning process and outlines their responsibilities

Part II provides resources for the designated emergency preparedness manager of an organization

Part III outlines the role of the four departmental preparedness teams with relevant resources.

This book is a handy resource for leaders of cultural organizations in developing a written plan and implementing action steps for potential disaster response.
