Readiness planning for the arts

Hurricane Harvey was the strongest storm to hit coastal Texas in decades, causing damage in many areas and affecting several performing arts organizations. Everyone in the path of the hurricane is in the thoughts of the League of American Orchestras, and the League stands ready to assist member organizations: contact us here. ArtsReady.org, a nonprofit that works on disaster-preparedness for the arts, offers multiple online resources for readiness planning, including guidance for staff, artists, volunteers, and board members; links to a mobile app from the Federal Emergency Management Agency with disaster resources, weather alerts, and safety tips; and lists of suggested measures to take in advance of and in the aftermath of a disaster.
