Community Preparedness Day Award

07/26/10  Portland, Ore.

Judith Norton and Shannon Carr have received a funding award from the National Network of Libraries of Medicine Pacific Northwest Region (NNLM/PNR).

The goal of this project, Building Bridges: Greater Portland Area Alliance for Response Forum, is to plan an all-day forum for regional library, archives and other cultural institutional staff and emergency response professionals. The forum will create an opportunity for participants to foster collaboration and/or cooperation between various agencies, improve local planning efforts and identify local resources in order to protect collections and continue to deliver services during and after an emergency event.
