The Maine State Museum, working with the Maine Emergency Management Agency has secured another year of funding for the Cultural Emergency Resource Coalition: Maine (CERC: Maine) through a Homeland Security grant. A collaboration of several state and private cultural agencies, including Maine Archives and Museums, CERC: Maine has just completed a project using FEMA Corps teams to facilitate the creation of disaster plans at 26 museums, libraries and historical societies around the state. In the coming year CERC: Maine will promote the creation of communication networks to help get appropriate volunteer aid, information and other resources to cultural institutions experiencing a disaster.
