Writing an Emergency Plan for Smaller Museums

June 10, 2022 @ 10:00 am – 12:00 pm
Writing an Emergency Plan for Smaller Museums
This online workshop will provide a practical framework for writing and updating Emergency Plans for smaller museums.


This workshop will be based upon the Emergency Plan template for museums developed by the ERN network and will introduce the template and discuss in practical steps how smaller museums might use it to update their own plans and procedures.

This short workshop will introduce the template, and will discuss in practical steps how smaller museums might use it to update their own plans and procedures in this area.

Aims of the session for delegates:

  • to become confident in using MDEM’s Emergency Plan template
  • raised awareness in how to include pandemic contingency plans into a museum’s Emergency Plan
  • confidence in undertaking a ‘risk assessment of threats’ to support the Emergency Planning process
  • understanding of the Museum Accreditation requirements for Emergency Planning

The event will be run by Regional Collections Officer and Emergency Planning Network leader, Anita Hollinshead.

Who can attend:

This session is for all Accredited Museums in the East Midlands, but will focus particularly on smaller organisations. This means both fully voluntary or with a small staff team.
