Posted: Tuesday, 12 February 2019

Booking is now open for the NICHE Conference 2019, 'Then it happened - the next 48 hours', on Monday 25 February 2019 at Ulster Museum, Belfast.

Disaster planning is about knowing what you are going to do and when; who is going to help you; how you are going to mitigate the damage and how you are getting back into operation after a disaster.

‘Then It Happened-the next 48 hours' is a unique opportunity to hear from sector leaders on their experiences of planning for and dealing with major incidents with an emphasis on the 48 hour period immediately following the incident. Following from the 2017 Conference on Disaster - Then it Happened the NI Committee on Heritage Emergencies have assembled planners and responders from the National Trust, Harwell Document Restoration Services, Historic Royal Palaces and NI Fire & Rescue Service to share their experiences of the immediate post incident period and the implications for disaster planning in cultural and historic buildings, collections and archives. Speakers will also look discuss the effects of such significant events on you, your staff and volunteers.

Refreshments will be provided on the day. If you have any special dietary requirements, please contact ulstermuseumreception@nmni.com

Who should attend: Anyone with responsibility for the safety of historic buildings, archives, collections and the staff who work there.

Northern Ireland Committee on Heritage Emergencies is made up of representatives from Northern Ireland Museums Council, National Museums Northern Ireland, Northern Ireland Fire and Rescue Service, Linen Hall Library, Public Records Office of Northern Ireland, Historic Royal Palaces, National Trust, Arts Council of Northern Ireland
