See below - For those of you with iphones and Ipads - there is now a free
app for the salvage wheel we have received if you attended any of the
Disaster Preparedness Trainings in the last few years.  Hopefully there
will be one for the android soon too.

Excuse the cross-posting

Heritage Preservation’s Emergency Response and Salvage Wheel is now
available free of charge on the iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad as the “ERS:
Emergency Response and Salvage” app.****
Long known as the authoritative resource for salvaging artifacts after a
disaster, the Wheel has been used by museums, libraries, and archives
around the world. This new app makes the Wheel’s invaluable guidance
accessible to anyone who is in need of practical advice for saving
collections in the first 48 hours after disaster strikes.****

Apple users can download this free app from the App Store. Simply search
for “ERS: Emergency Response and Salvage.” To download, your device must
run iOS 5.1 or later. Complete technical requirements are available on the
ERS page at the App Store,****

ERS provides the same reliable content found in the original Wheel. The app
outlines critical stages of disaster response and provides practical
salvage tips for nine types of collections, from photographs to natural
history specimens. ERS can help users protect precious collections and
significant records, access reliable information instantly, and save
damaged objects. The app was created in partnership with the National
Center for Preservation Technology and Training.

The original slide-chart Wheel was created by Heritage Preservation, a
national non-profit organization dedicated to preserving the cultural
heritage of the United States. It has been translated into six languages
and distributed internationally in more than 40 countries. The original
Emergency Response and Salvage Wheel, sponsored by BELFOR, is still
available for purchase. Visit the Bookstore at
