These assessments however, do not necessarily prioritise cultural heritage sites and buildings. Therefore, in order to synchronise efforts, ensure that a representative from the institution coordinating the emergency response participates in situation analysis for cultural heritage. ANALYSE COLLECT PLAN 36 First Aid to Cultural Heritage in Times of Crisis | 1. Handbook 4 Based on the information available, analyse the immediate security actions (see page 73) required at each site. For example, does the site need to be covered, or should a guard be assigned to protect the area? In the case of intangible heritage, consider the kind of relief-support the practising community needs in order to recover from the emergency. 5 Identify the types of supplies and equipment (Toolkit, see page 9) you will require for an on-site damage and risk assessment. 6 Using the stakeholder and actor map, identify which of the stakeholders and actors could give you permission for on-site work, facilitate access, provide resources, organize logistics and provide expertise for: a. on-site damage and risk assessments; b. security and stabilisation operations at each site; c. evaluation and monitoring of the work carried out at each site. 7 Based on the information available about the preferred local language(s), or forms of communication in the affected area, identify strategies for communicating with emergency actors
