May 6, 2020
2:00PM - 3:30 PM ET
Managing the fire risk to collections and museums requires a multi-pronged strategy incorporating prevention programs, fire containment measures, as well as detection and suppression systems. When implemented together, the frequency of unintentional fires can be drastically reduced, and the impact of fires successfully managed. A brief review of the Smithsonian’s fire experience, lessons learned, and strategies employed to manage fire risk will be presented.
