Oregon historical and heritage societies urged to make emergency plans

Fires, floods, and other emergencies can not only become historic events, they can wipe out history--artifacts of history, anyway.

That's why Oregon Heritage, the state historic preservation office, has been working for some time on a project to get organizations in the business of preserving history to draw up resiliency plans.

The point is to be ready for emergencies, and the recommendations can be as simple as not storing rare documents on low shelves that might get flooded.

Kuri Gill is Grants and Outreach Coordinator at Oregon Heritage; she visits with more details.
