Disaster Response & Recovery
General Information - Saving Family Treasures - Salvage Procedures
"A pro-active rather than re-active approach to disaster preparation is the best means of mitigating damage from natural disasters or other forms of destruction.
However, despite systematic planning efforts, when emergencies do occur — whether they are small scale or catastrophic — they can be overwhelming. Information in this section provides information and guidance on recovering various types of record materials.
Please be Aware
- Always put health and human safety first before trying to save important collections, papers, books, or photographs.
- Make sure the area has been declared safe to enter by the appropriate authorities."
