Disaster Handling

One of the most serious emergency situations affecting cultural property is water ingress caused, for example, by floods, frozen water pipes, windows broken by the wind or blocked downpipes. But fires and building damage also represent existential threat scenarios that cannot be completely ruled out despite all care and prudence. Emergency boxes were developed with these scenarios in mind. They contain selected materials that are quickly available in an emergency and provide valuable "first aid". In particular, they help to immediately contain the spread of damage and to professionally secure, evacuate and document damaged or endangered cultural property.
