Based on Heritage Preservation’s Emergency Response & Salvage Wheel, a well-respected cultural heritage protection tool, the Emergency Response and Salvage app outlines critical stages of disaster response, such as stabilizing the environment and assessing damage.
It also provides practical salvage tips for nine types of collections: photographs, books and documents, paintings, electronic records, textiles, furniture, ceramics/stone/metal, organic materials, and natural history specimens.
This app will help users protect precious collections and significant records, access reliable information instantly, and save damaged objects.
Apple has discontinued support for 32 bit iOS applications, including the earlier version of this application.
