Limited Capacity seats available

Do you and your colleagues have the necessary rapid-response plans, training and supplies to address disasters safely? Focusing on health and safety issues in emergency response, this session will discuss practical approaches and lessons learned by conservators, safety and emergency professionals from real disaster scenarios. Presenters from McGill University’s Emergency Management & Preparedness Office and Redpath Museum will discuss institution-wide implementation of preparation and response, focusing on the health and safety needs of first responders and how the wider University incident plan  is coordinated with the Museum.  Representatives of the National Heritage Responders (Formerly AIC-CERT) will discuss health and safety issues related to conservators acting as second responders. 
Specific health and safety topics will include creating go-kits and the personal safety supplies needed first during an emergency; deterioration of emergency supplies; steps in the re-entry and understanding site safety; environmental concerns, including water and particulate hazards and mental health issues of victims and those responding to the emergency.
