The State Agency representing libraries in the Commonwealth, the Massachusetts Board of Library Commissioners (MBLC), is currently sponsoring a program supporting the continued development of Emergency Response plans and policies. Originally released for libraries only, they are now pleased to offer a part of the program beyond libraries, to other types of cultural institutions in the State!

They can provide you a coupon code for free access to a high-quality emergency planning resource called “dPlan” for one year from date of sign-up. It provides guided templates and short prompts that are very helpful for those who want to update (or create) their emergency response plans. It also supports wide collaboration with responders and staff.

If you may benefit from free access to dPlan, please complete the following form, linked above. (The link also has more info about dPlan.) You will then receive the coupon code. Feel free to share widely.
