Limited Capacity seats available

Dealing with mold is nearly always part of disaster response. In addition to the direct impacts of floods and storm-driven rains, collections can become wet from fire suppression efforts or exposure to weather from earthquake or wind damage.  Especially when structural damage is significant, it may be many days before access to collections is possible, and resultant extended power outages may allow mold growth. This workshop will draw from the experiences of AIC-CERT responses in New York, Haiti, Galveston, and Midwest floods to examine effective techniques for treating mold outbreaks.
