The National Center for Preservation Technology and Training, a branch of the National Park Service, provides numerous articles and resources related to emergency preparedness and disaster recovery.

Resource types include articles, webinars, podcasts, and workshop opportunities.

Particularly helpful are bulleted lists related to specific types of preventive measures, such as hurricane preparedness or protecting your collection, that busy professionals can reference when drafting emergency preparedness plans or responding to unfortunate events.

Resources are organized by categories such as buildings and sites, collections, disaster plans, documentation, fires, health and safety, and landscapes.

NCCPT’s Emergency Response and Salvage App can be downloaded from this site as well. This app is based on Heritage Preservation’s Emergency Response and Salvage Wheel. The app allows professionals to access reliable information instantly related to the protection of collections in one handy place.
