In the event of unanticipated emergencies or catastrophic events, it is critical for infrastructure to be repaired quickly to restore connectivity. Such emergency undertakings can put historic properties at risk for damage or destruction, so it is vital to have procedures for emergency undertakings in place beforehand. This workshop examines the state of the practice for dealing with emergency undertakings among agencies and tribes and identifies best practices for further dissemination.
