When my whole town was evacuated because of fires I wasn't thinking clearly. I would have loved the instant comfort about what to do, what to take, how to protect my studio and thus how to be calmer. The Studio Protector would have helped me prepare ahead of time and act decisively.Lana Wilson, potter (California)
Get Ready, Respond Effectively, Rebound Quickly
CERF+ has developed an emergency preparedness and response toolkit for artists called the Studio Protector: The Artist's Guide to Emergencies. It consists of an interactive ready-reference wallguide that provides easy-to-follow checklists for emergency preparation and response. A companion (free) online guide provides in-depth information including articles, interviews with artists and experts, tips, and annotated resource lists.
These tools were designed by artists for artists with the assistance of some of the nation's leading authorities on emergency preparedness, recovery, and conservation - and field tested by artists who have been through disaster.
As Russell Karkowski, a furniture maker from Iowa and CERF+ beneficiary, confessed, "[in an emergency] you can only do what you have practiced."
