You are halfway there – only three more steps to complete your Pocket Response Plan (PREP<http://www.oregon.gov/oprd/HCD/OHC/docs/OC2C%20Prep%20Plan.doc>)!

This week’s assignment involves identifying Regional Contacts, naming Emergency Recovery Services and creating a staff phone tree.

Regional contacts include city and county emergency management offices, and state level contacts such as your friends at Oregon Heritage. These contacts can put you in touch with other recovery resources.

Anticipate recovery from all types of disasters and the types of services you might need. Depending on the disaster, services could include a structural architect or engineer; conservators, commercial refrigeration or freezing; or the local health department. These services can help the recovery team make sure structures are safe for entry, ensure a safe environment for recovery work and keep artifacts safe / stabilized during the recovery period.

Finally, this week create a Staff Phone Tree that identifies key staff with information pertinent to your organization’s recovery.

Oregon Heritage is helping you during this six-week period to create a Pocket Response Plan that qualifies your organization for an incentive payment from the Connecting to Collections Project.

A few minutes of effort today to begin creating a PReP will begin to qualify your organization for an incentive payment from the Connecting to Collections Project. Oregon Heritage will be right there working with you along the way.

Here’s how it works. Every week for six weeks, Oregon Heritage News sends you a section or two of the PREP to complete. Each segment takes just a few minutes to fill in with information you already have in your museum, library or archive.

At the end of six weeks, you will have a finished PReP and that qualifies you for a financial incentive from the Oregon Connecting to Collections project, funded in part by the Institute of Museum and Library Services.
