In 1994, in response to the Northridge Earthquake in the Los Angeles area, Scott Haskins was asked to write a pamphlet entitled "How To Respond After An Earthquake." 500,000 units were distributed to the public through the Human Resource department of The Bank of America Corporation. Following this event, he was asked to write "Save Your Stuff in the Workplace" because there was (and is) no other information available to the corporate and government world.
"Save Your Stuff" fills the need for public outreach and education on the subject of Emergency Preparedness and Disaster Response. There is no other resource available to provide this information and education in an entrepreneurial way. The presentation of the educational information is unique in that it translates the professional conservation/preservationese into plain public English.
Scott M. Haskins has worked in the US and Europe as a professional art conservator since 1975. In addition, Scott, for many years, was an adult education teacher on how to preserve your treasured family history items. He works with the general public, historical societies, museums, corporations, private collectors, art galleries, city, state and federal governments and MOST IMPORTANT, he has helped tens of thousands of people, just like you, to save their “stuff.”
He is also an expert witness in the Los Angeles Supreme Court system and on the part of the federal government regarding public art issues. He has done consultation work for a long list of notable organizations including Pope Paul IIIs family, the Shroud of Turin project, the Historical Dept of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and the Getty Conservation Institute among many others.
Scott Haskins has written dozens of articles on what to do at home to take care of your stuff that has been published in corporate newsletters, art magazines, and other specialty publications and websites. He also wrote a pamphlet entitled “How To Respond After An Earthquake” of which over 500,000 were distributed in Los Angeles, through the human resource departments of the Bank of America after the Northridge Earthquake.
He has been personally involved in seven “major” California disasters: three earthquakes (Silomar ‘71, Whittier ‘89 and Northridge ‘94), two fires (Santa Barbara 90, 2008 and Oakland ‘93) and one flood (Santa Barbara 95) and has consulted with people on innumerable other accidents. He is the expert, providing important (essential!) information for those interested in preserving: family history, genealogy, scrapbooking, collectibles, old letters, memorabilia, old photos, books, art and frames that have been afflicted with mold, dirt, rips, broken ceramics and glass, vandalism, smoke, holes, tears and water damage caused by fires, earthquakes, floods, hurricanes, tornadoes, leaking water heaters, Father Time. . .or even grandchildren!
