FAIC manages several initiates that aim to address all phases of disasters: from preparedness, to response, to recovery, to mitigation.
AIC and FAIC are partners in the Heritage Emergency National Task Force (HENTF)
. HENTF offers tools and information to cultural institutions and the general public for preparing for and responding to emergencies that affect collections and family treasures.
FAIC is a member of the National Voluntary Organizations Active in Disaster (National VOAD
), an association of organizations that mitigate and alleviate the impact of disasters. They accomplish this by providing a forum promoting cooperation, communication, coordination, and collaboration--and by fostering more effective delivery of services to communities affected by disaster.
AIC's Emergency Committee
Our Emergency Committee
aims to promote awareness and increase member knowledge in the areas of emergency preparedness, response, and recovery for cultural heritage.
