ERS outlines critical stages of disaster response, such as stabilizing the environment and assessing damage. It will help users protect precious collections and significant records, access reliable information instantly, and save damaged objects.
Developed by the National Center for Preservation Technology and Training (NCPTT) and based on Heritage Preservation's popular Emergency Response and Salvage Wheel, this app provides practical salvage tips for nine types of collections: photographs, books and documents, paintings, electronic records, textiles, furniture, ceramics/stone/metal, organic materials, and natural history specimens.

Ratings and Reviews
Hope I never have to use it!
Basic info, but I anticipate it will be very helpful to have immediately at hand in a museum emergency. I hope I will never have to use it. Perhaps a later upgrade might include a checklist, or a notes page where you could keep your disaster-related scribbles all in one place instead of toggling back and forth to another screen.
Basic app disaster wheel
Straightforward and basic app version of the Disaster Wheel. While there's room for advancement, it works well and does what it needs to. If you work in cultural preservation, you probably need this.
Needs to be updated, iOS 11
Just downloaded the app and revived an alert that it needs to be updated to work with iOS 11. Please make updating the app a priority.
