You can't always foresee a disaster, but you can prepare and know where to reach out for advice. Below are resources from the Northeast Document Conservation Center (NEDCC) for National Preparedness Month—and every day.
- NEDCC Preservation Specialists are available 24/7 to provide telephone advice to institutions and individuals handling collection-related disasters. Information includes advice on drying wet collections and dealing with damage from fire, pests, and mold. The 24/7 Collections Emergency hotline is 1-855-245-8303.
