EMERGENCY RESPONSE WORKING GROUP FOR UNIVERSITY COLLECTIONS AND RECORDS
The mission of the Emergency Response Working Group (ERWG) for University Collections and Records is to coordinate emergency preparedness planning, response operations, and recovery activities among administrative and academic units that manage collections of objects and records of importance and value to the University of Delaware. The ERWG stands as a means for cooperation among those units before, during, and after emergencies, as a liaison between its participants and supporting and advisory units, and as a collective representation to the University administration of the emergency preparedness needs of its constituents.
To accomplish its mission, the ERWG will identify and secure appropriate emergency management resources drawn from both within and outside of the university community, and will conduct collaborative activities intended to coordinate and test preparedness planning, emergency response and recovery planning efforts among the participating units. These activities are intended to be both preventive and restorative, providing a means for mitigating risks to the collections and records of the University of Delaware, and facilitating restoration in the wake of emergency situations.
