With disasters such as the fire at Clandon Park and the Glasgow School of Art, floods affecting many heritage buildings and collections in York, and an arson attack at Manchester’s Wythenshawe Hall, emergency procedures are at the forefront of the minds of many of us with collections care responsibilities. So it seemed like an appropriate time to have disaster planning and emergency response as the theme for our annual conference.
