 Disaster Preparedness

Overview: Disasters happen. A massive flood inundates a central downtown. A tornado levels a small town in a matter of minutes. A hurricane ravages a community. Disasters come in all forms, shapes and sizes, and can range from the extreme example of the September 11, 2001 tragedy, to smaller local disasters such as a burst water pipe over a file room.

When disasters occur, local government entities do not have the luxury of closing their doors and shutting down. Emergency responders need some types of essential records to respond to the situation and to continue operations. The loss of vital or essential records can jeopardize a government entity's ability to provide immediate assistance to the individuals directly affected by its activities. 

Local governmental entities are responsible for managing and protecting organizational, vital or essential, records. Government Archivists, Records Managers, and Municipal Clerks are tasked to protect our organization’s vital assets with limited staff and resources. 

Join this panel of experts as they outline best practices, solutions and lessons learned while covering:

  • The identification of vital/essential records;
  • Analyzing your vulnerability to information loss;
  • Vital/essential records protection including special needs of electronic, paper, and other media;
  • Elements of a disaster preparedness plan.
