Webinar Recording: “Libraries and Non-Traditional Facilities in Emergencies”

From a National Library of Medicine/Disaster Lit Entry:

This one-hour webinar [from FEMA, recorded on August 27, 2019] describes the role non-traditional facilities like libraries and senior centers play in emergencies. Public facilities of this type can be powerful resources during disasters and emergencies. Topics discussed include how New Jersey integrated its library system into the state emergency disaster plan and how New York City leveraged its public facilities to develop a cooling center network. Speakers include representatives from the New Jersey State Library, New York City Emergency Management, and the Bureau of Emergency Preparedness at the New York City Department for the Aging.
