When the pipe breaks, the fire starts, or the earth moves under your library, what will you do? In the first moments of an emergency, personal safety is your priority. But after you've determined that people and structures are secure, you may be faced with the overwhelming job of putting your library back in order. The success you have will be the result of how well you have prepared. What should you do first? Who needs to be involved? How can you avoid damaging materials while you rescue them? And how can you help staff cope with the trauma?

This webcast will explain the 10 most important steps you should take to prevent a library emergency from turning into a disaster. Participants will learn how to protect people, prevent damage to materials, and provide the best possible outcome. Don't be left unprepared!
