 Wildfires, floods, and destructive storms are becoming common events,
adding to the more predictable risks that our collections and buildings are
facing. Our best line of defense is emergency preparedness, training and
response. The British Columbia Heritage Emergency Response Network (BC
HERN) is a growing consortium of institutions within the arts and culture
sector whose staff feel morally and professionally obliged to safeguard the
collections that they hold by adequately planning for emergency situations
as well as to support others in the event of localized emergencies.

Join the BC HERN team of experts for a 2-day hands-on workshop that
provides training and guidance on emergency response and collections
salvage (mixed and archival materials) and is targeted at museum & gallery
professionals, keepers of cultural heritage, and volunteers from small
cultural institutions with little to no training in responding to

The next workshop will take place at *Rossland Museum & Discovery Centre in
Rossland, BC on September 18 & 19, 2022*.

Cost (to cover material and catering): $45.00.
*If cost is a barrier to attending, please get in touch with the BCMA team
at bcma at museum.bc.ca <bcma at museum.bc.ca>, we're happy to find a solution.*
