Safe evacuation of historical buildings content

Zdena Rosicka


Damage to historical buildings and its content in case of emergency has to be minimised. Quality of logistic support can affect how fast and safe movable cultural heritage items can be salvaged; evacuation is considered as one of methods how valuables can be saved. Most emergencies are water related, i.e., the result of flooding, leaking water transport system or extinguishing fire. In order to reduce loss or possible theft, relevant detailed documentation should be available.
