Training for staff and the purchase of supplies for emergency disaster preparedness for two cultural institutions susceptible to earthquake, fire, flood, and tornado in the Uinta Basin -- the Uintah Library's Regional History Center and the State Field House of Natural History. The Regional History Center contains 20,000 books, 2,200 manuscript collections, 300 oral history interviews, and an extensive photograph archive containing over 300,000 historic images from the local Leo Thoren-Lawrence DeVed studio. In addition to its extensive natural history collection, the Field House of Natural History contains 3,450 ethnological and archaeological artifacts including Ute bead and leather works, as well as 142 paintings and murals from Ernest Untermann, considered the "artist of the Uintas."

Provide disaster management training for library staff, to assure the safety of historical collections, and purchase disaster response supplies.
