David Carmichael attempts to answer the question “What do you do when there are Picasso’s floating in the basement?” with a book intended for libraries, archives, and museums. He provides a framework for cultural institutions to use the Incident Command System before and during a disaster, to protect and salvage their collections. His friendly and conversational style doesn’t intimidate or pressure and explains a complex system in understandable language. This book could be a guide to the ICS for any non-emergency response institution or agency.
