Barnett, Jonathan R.


The purpose of this project was to devise a disaster plan for the National Guard Armory. The Armory houses a large amount of artifacts that must be protected in the event of a disaster. To be sure that the collection of the Armory remains intact, an effective disaster plan must be in place. A disaster plan is designed to prevent the occurrence of and minimize the impact of a disaster. The plan should be flexible to allow for changes, simple so it can be easily understood, detailed to minimize the number of decisions, and adaptable to cover any aspect that it was not specifically designed to incorporate.
