First Tuesdays was designed as a continuing-education opportunity for staff of libraries in Washington State. This free web presentation, from 9:00 a.m. to 10:00 a.m., allows attendees to share their skills and successes and learn about new topics. The special-subject presentations, lasting about 60 minutes, are recorded so that others may listen at their own convenience.
Disaster response and recovery: Public libraries as Key community partners presented by Phil Heikkinen, Orcas Island Library, August 2, 2016, 9:00 AM PACIFIC
This session will address how libraries can develop plans for responding to disasters and emergencies. Perhaps even more important can be the crucial roles libraries can play in helping their communities prepare for and respond to a disaster or emergency through such means as building community resilience, sharing information, facilitating networking, providing shelter, and contributing to staffing of an emergency operations center.
