New Webinar: Disaster Recovery and Salvage for Government Records

underwater-townTorrential rain blanketed your town, the nearby creek quickly swelled beyond its banks, and water seeped into your facility. Maybe you store your records near the restroom (we’ve heard stories) and a plumbing mishap/malfunction flooded your storage area. Perhaps your HVAC (Heating, Ventilation, Air Conditioning) system failed over the weekend and the humid conditions caused mold to begin growing on some of your collections. What would you do?  Who ya’ gonna call?

On Thursday, May 22, 2014, TSLAC Conservator Sarah Norris will join us for a live webinar entitled “Disaster Recovery & Salvage for Government Records” in which we’ll discuss state and local government agencies’ legal obligations; strategies for water emergency and disaster planning and prevention; storage recommendations; assessing damage to your records including specific issues and concerns with damage caused by water, mold, and pests; salvage techniques for paper, books, photographs, and electronic media; and recovery/restoration contracting resources.

What are you waiting for?  The webinar will run about 50 minutes and allow time for your questions and answers at the end—and it’s free.  For more information contact or Bret Adams at 512-936-0270 /
