We are a regional membership organisation working together to improve emergency planning and preparedness, for the benefit of public access collections and heritage in Yorkshire & Humber.


In return for a modest subscription, we provide our members with development and training opportunities and access to emergency equipment and materials.

Our members share best practice, information and expertise on disaster planning and support. The network is run voluntarily by a group of professionals, and current members include museums, galleries, libraries and archives.


Don’t Panic.

The Rapid Response Network is an essential part of emergency planning for Special Collections at the University of Bradford. It offers us a far wider range of equipment than we could assemble in house.
