Develop and implement a standard protocol for electronic and hard copy document storage based on standard components of the PA program for use at all field offices. Deploy an archivist at the onset of a declared event to set up network files for electronic data storage and physical file storage areas for critical hard-copy documents. With the inevitable turnover of response/recovery personnel, being able to quickly access information and avoid rework would enhance efficiency and provide a more seamless transfer of knowledge. Basing the methodology on established parameters of the PA program would ensure that the protocol could be universally implemented and applied.
