The MACC staff is available 24 hours-a-day, 7 days a week to give immediate assistance with disaster recovery efforts. Institutions and individuals experiencing a collections disaster can contact MACC to consult on the best practices to protect and recover their collections.
Call the main phone number, 612-870-3120 and you will be directed to a staff member immediately or to an after-hours emergency phone. For non-urgent issues, MACC email is answered during the day. This can also be an effective communication link to knowledgeable MACC conservators. The main email for that contact is: email@example.com
These communications and assistance are free and can provide you with condition assessment information and advice regarding the proper care and handling of damaged or at-risk art and artifacts. MACC also maintains a cache of disaster supplies when the on-site assistance of MACC conservators is essential to a collections’ recovery. MACC’s on-site disaster recovery assistance is a fee-based service dependent on travel and time.
MACC offers assistance in writing Emergency Preparedness/Disaster Plans for collections at all types of institutions. MACC will help direct you to grant funding that is available for this process from federal agencies and local and regional foundations. MORE
