NCCHP Disaster Planning Project Kicks Off

Cara Mooney, of Simmons College, visited NCCHP on August 9th to kick off a project that will document the museum's full disaster plan including damage mitigation steps to be taken pre and post-disaster. Cara will be basing the project on the Northeast Document Conservation Center (NEDCC) disaster planning guidelines and template.

Today's meeting was very informative and revealed several new state disaster assistance resources we had been unaware of until now. We're looking forward to the project and learning many more lessons we hope to never need!
