Weather It Together: Disaster Response & Recovery for Historic Communities

Like hazard mitigation planning, disaster response and recovery requires a different approach to historic properties. Local governments and partner organizations can prepare ahead and, in responding to an event, ensure that activities are undertaken such as: sorting debris to store historic building components for salvage, requesting assistance from the Maryland Historical Trust to help with post-disaster assessment of historic buildings, and disseminating information on how to properly dry and clean historic buildings after a flood.

Help Documents

These fact sheets have been developed by the Maryland Historical Trust to assist property owners/occupants dealing with historic resources damaged by flooding.
