Lori Foley and Dan Kochensparger give tips on how to work with emergency responders in your community. When disaster strikes your institution, emergency responders loom large and are in charge. Who are your emergency responders, and how do you convince them that cultural resources require special attention? Learn how to establish a relationship with your emergency responders before disaster strikes, how to work with them when disaster does strike, and how to sustain these important relationships.

The featured resource for this webinar will be the Working with Emergency Responders poster, a product of Lessons Applied: Katrina and Cultural Heritage, a project of the Heritage Emergency National Task Force, co-sponsored by Heritage Preservation and FEMA.
