    ACLA is embarking on a new Emergency Preparedness effort as part of our work with Allegheny County Health Department’s Live Well Allegheny initiative. In the event of a major disaster or emergency county libraries are called upon for up-to-date information and referrals to critical services. Libraries may be designated Points of Distribution (POD) for much needed medical and food supplies. They may serve as warming and cooling stations in their communities. Libraries can also help individuals to be as personally prepared as possible. In light of recent disasters and emergencies, new best practices and information has been developed. It is imperative that libraries and the general public receive this information to allow them to best manage during an unforeseen emergency. To that end, on Wednesday, April 8, ACLA will provide a special professional development training to Allegheny County library directors on disaster/emergency preparedness. If a library director is not able to attend, another staff person may attend in their place. This workshop will be held at the Allegheny County Department of Emergency Services, 400 North Lexington Street, Second Floor, Pittsburgh, PA 15208. The objective of this training is to help produce a standard of quality and reliability regarding the information that Allegheny County libraries and their staff have with regard to emergency preparedness for both libraries and for the residents they serve. The goal is to ensure all 73 library locations in Allegheny County are positioned to support their communities in a crisis, and to ensure that all residents know where to turn for assistance. Using feedback from the speakers and participants, this initial training will be refined and serve as the template for offering additional training throughout 2015 to reach the remaining staff at county libraries. Professionals from the Allegheny County Department of Emergency Services, Allegheny County 911, Pennsylvania 2-1-1 Southwest, American Red Cross, and Alliance for Response, Pittsburgh Chapter will provide pertinent information on best practices and tools related to emergency preparedness. Registration opens at 9:30 AM. Light refreshments will be available throughout the morning and a lunch will be provided. Please advise if you have special dietary requirements. Our training is set to conclude at 4 PM. This workshop offers 5 CE hours. Free parking is available. Participants will enter through a security guard station on the first floor where they will be directed to the elevators to take to the second floor. Signage will guide you to the workshop. Allegheny County library directors may register via EventKeeper. You are encouraged to complete a pre-conference survey to measure existing assumptions regarding emergency preparedness at surveymonkey.com/s/aclaemergencypreparedness Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions you may have and hope to see you soon!
