Be Prepared: Hurricane Henri | A Message from CT Humanities
August 21, 2021 • Features & News

Dear Colleagues,

In anticipation of the impact of Hurricane Henri, I have been in touch with the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) and their liaison with the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and the Heritage Emergency National Task Force (HENTF).

Here are some points of contact, should you need them:
American Institute for Conservation (AIC)
Elaina Gregg,
Elaina is a great point of contact to connect institutions needing technical assistance.

National Heritage Responders
Sites and organizations can also reach out directly to the AIC-supported National Heritage Responders at (202) 661-8068. This hotline can connect cultural organizations directly with conservators with specialized training in disaster preparedness and recovery.

Please monitor the storm via the National Hurricane Center and state emergency management agencies. Key messages in Spanish can be accessed from that URL as well. You’ll find additional resources on the HENTF dashboard that contains graphics from the National Hurricane Center as well as preparedness tips for cultural institutions and other useful links.

CT Humanities will be in touch again after the storm to assess how we can best assist in the aftermath. In the meantime, please review the information below from Conservation ConneCTion at CoSTEP-CT at the Connecticut State Library for steps you can take to prepare your organization for the storm.

I wish you all the best,

Jason R. Mancini, Ph.D.
Executive Director
