May 1 is Mayday – a day to reflect on, plan and/or practice disaster response and recovery plans and techniques. The purpose of MayDay is to focus on disaster preparedness for one day every year. Any form of preparedness helps if a disaster occurs. MayDay is an opportunity to update a disaster plan, practice emergency procedures, provide training (fire drills, evacuations, fire extinguisher use, etc.), update contact lists, and review storage facilities. These are just a few examples of activities for MayDay. Get creative and find an activity that is right for your facility, staff and collection.
