The Australian Institute for the Conservation of Cultural Material (AICCM) has developed a 2022 Disaster Preparedness Calendar to help cultural organisations act in a timely manner and be prepared for the hazards prominent in their region. While there are some disasters we cannot prevent, we are able to reduce their impact on our collections by following a few simple steps.
- Practicing risk reduction
- Focusing on disaster preparedness
- Reviewing policies
- Developing resilient communities
The calendar shows reminders for risk mitigation such as changing the batteries in your smoke detector or cleaning out your gutters. hese activities can help keep you and your organisation be ready to respond to emergencies that might strike your locality.
The AICCM has both physical and electronic versions of their calendat.
