Washington, DC

Monday, May 21, 2018 - 12:30pm to 2:00pm

 

Come hear from NARA conservators, as well as representatives from the National Park Service and the Smithsonian Institution, on the Emergency Support Function (ESF #11) Mission Assignment to Puerto Rico in November and December 2017.

The mission focused on assessing damage and providing assistance at the National Archives and Library and the Institute of Puerto Rican Culture. The team visited a number of other affected governmental and cultural heritage institutions, and gave three day-long training sessions in heritage emergency response in three cities across the island. Hear firsthand accounts of the experience from the responders!
