Customizing the New Pocket Response Resource

No sessions are currently scheduled for this event. To request a new session, please contact


The new ArtsReady 2.0/dPlan Pocket Response Resource, (“PRR”), is a free document designed specifically for arts and cultural organizations. The PRR puts critical emergency information in the pocket (or device) of staff, crew and volunteers, ensuring they have immediate access to information they’ll need in the first minutes and hours of any type of emergency. The PRR and Instructions, available for free download, prompts organizations to collect critical contact information on one side, and critical action steps such as evacuation, crisis communications, situational assessment, and prioritizing assets to be protected or salvaged on the other. While the Pocket Response Resource is designed to be “do it yourself,” this webinar will provide you with guidance and recommendations to maximize the utility of your PRR, including:

  • Creating your internal Response Team
  • Tailoring your PRR if you rent out your space, present guest artists, or have multiple facilities
  • Touring the free Guides and Resources
