Hurricane and Disaster: Preparedness and Response

Public libraries play an essential role in helping their communities prepare for and recover from hurricanes and in assisting evacuees as they wait to return from a hurricane threat. This half-day workshop will focus attention on 6-8 public library disaster responder service roles. These are roles that public libraries may adopt to improve their communities' hurricane response. Instruction will include how to use the Institute’s Public Library Hurricane Response website. Participants will leave the workshop with specific, low cost, practical, ideas that public libraries can implement to better assist their communities during hurricane season.

Trainer: Joe Ryan, Project Manager, Hurricane/Disaster Preparedness and Response
