With any luck, Hurricane Sandy has left your organization unscathed.  But if you have storm damage or flooding, there is help.

For Documents and Works on Paper: 
Contact Northeast Document Conservation Center's Disaster Assistance Hotline, 978-470-1010, day or night, seven days a week. After Center hours, you will be referred to a second telephone number to reach a staff member. Please do NOT request disaster assistance via email, since it is not monitored 24 hours a day. NEDCC staff members are available 24 hours a day to provide telephone advice when a disaster occurs. This service is provided at no charge thanks to a grant to NEDCC from the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH). This service does not normally include on-site assistance.

For Artwork and Historic Artifacts:

Another source for hurricane disaster relief, with trained specialists right here in Maine is the American Institute of Conservation's Collections Emergency Response TeamAIC-CERT responds to the needs of cultural institutions during emergencies and disasters through coordinated efforts with first responders, state agencies, vendors and the public. For 24-hour assistance from trained volunteers, call (202) 661-8068.
