|Vermont Alliance for Response
The 2009 Forum revived interest in the pre-established Vermont Emergency Response Team for Cultural Institutions (VERTCI). Team members and new recruits will receive training to better prepare them to aid Vermont institutions during emergencies. The Alliance for Response steering committee has been invited to participate in a statewide disaster exercises, and the group is working with the Vermont Emergency Management Agency to organize Citizen Emergency Response Team (CERT) training for cultural heritage staff.
Vermont Alliance for Response is part of the new Vermont Cultural Heritage and Art Recovery Team (VCHART). Its members include curators, conservators, librarians, archivists, municipal clerks, and emergency responders. To learn more click here.
