Why is it important to coordinate cultural heritage first aid with the overall emergency response? During an emergency, priorities for relief and recovery are identified through pre-organized national or international emergency management systems. Based on the priorities identified, aid is then channelled through these systems. To ensure safety and security, access to the affected area is strictly controlled. In order to gain access to the affected area and ensure that cultural heritage is considered a priority, it is important to coordinate cultural heritage efforts within the overall emergency response. Failure to do so may increase the risk of the affected heritage being damaged or destroyed. Stamping of heritage structures in Jacmel, Haiti, 2010. Photo: Aparna Tandon, ICCROM.

This exercise was carried out in parallel with structural evaluations conducted by the Ministry of Public Works and supporting UN agencies. Full coordination was not possible, mainly because the recovery or protection of cultural heritage was not included in either the national or international emergency response. As a result, many historic structures were declared unsafe and were eventually demolished.
