TITLE: "Collaborative Disaster Preparedness"
OVERVIEW: This webinar will discuss Collaborative Response Networks (CRN’s) and the Seattle Heritage Emergency Response Network (SHERN); what a collaborative response network is, how & why SHERN was developed, what their mission is, and the future of disaster preparedness.
Cultural & government institutions often lack funding for comprehensive emergency response. The collaborative model allows for pooling resources and expertise that might otherwise be out of reach for a lot of us. The presenter will touch on how CRN’s promote awareness, assist member organizations, organize workshops, prepare, and share information, acquire, and share equipment, cooperate, and facilitate partnerships. This discussion will also touch on developing and implementing disaster preparedness programs at the institutional level.
Webinar Attendees will come away from this presentation with an understanding of what CRN’s are, how SHERN was developed and can be used as a model for other regional networks, what the mission of a CRN is, and how to build a network. Attendees will also get insight into the creation of an institutional disaster preparedness program.
