SCRLC's Disaster Plan includes a list of vendors who assist with the salvage of materials of all types. This word document can be used as a template for your library's plan.
What does it mean to "shelter-in-place"? That is when you must seek shelter in a safe room where you are (in your home or office) after being directed to do so by authorities, because of an event such as a tornado, chemical incident, or terrorist attack.
