Request for Expression of Interest: HELP! A Survivor's Guide to Emergency Preparedness Researchers

The Alberta Museums Association is issuing a Request for Expression of Interest for researchers interested in the development of content for the revision of the AMA's publication, Help! A Survivor's Guide to Emergency Preparedness.

Help! A Survivor's Guide to Emergency Preparedness is a valuable resource for museums at all stages of organizational life. It provides institutions with the knowledge and tools necessary to be prepared for an emergency. This publication is distributed worldwide and is considered a key resource in museum disaster management. The new edition will update the current standards of practice and provide a framework to implement these standards.
