The purchase of disaster recovery kits and the training of two staff members from the Museum of Cultural and Natural History in emergency preparedness and response. The museum holds over 48,000 objects, with history collections focused on the settlement of central Michigan from the 1840s to the present. They are used in exhibitions, school lending programs, and university teaching and research. The training would enable the museum to develop a disaster preparedness plan, and the trained staff members would also incorporate new content about emergency planning into the university's museum studies courses.

This grant will support disaster training for staff at the Museum of Cultural and Natural History (MCNH) at Central Michigan University, and also support the purchase of emergency preparedness kits for the museum. This will help the museum to move forward with recommendations from its 2007 CAP assessment.
