Writing An Emergency Plan – For Small Museums
MDEM are pleased to be launching their new Emergency Plan template for museums. This is an updated template which takes into consideration lessons learned from the pandemic as well as practical templates and resources to ensure your Emergency Plan is both practical and Museum Accreditation compliant.
This short workshop will introduce the new 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 Advisor 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.
