The Northwest Pennsylvania Alliance for Response is one of several localized networks created to assist cultural organizations with disaster response. These networks are made up of a variety of members, from staff and volunteers at local cultural institutions, to conservators in private practice, to first responders and emergency managers. The purpose of the network is to foster cooperation among cultural organizations, influence local planning efforts, and enhance the protection of cultural and historic resources.
