Disaster Management Planning

Challenges

The World continues to experience a wide variety of natural and human induced disasters. These are adversely impacting our heritage as well. These disasters include earthquakes, tsunamis, floods, volcanoes, fires, and wildfires.

Approach

Disaster Management involves planning what to do before, during and after a disaster or emergency occurs. Through further understanding these hazards, and assessing a structure’s behaviour to them, we can better prepare for disasters.

A risk-informed, performance-based approach exists offering opportunities to better understand objectives, identify credible hazards and develop alternatives that allow stakeholders (owners, government, etc.) to make risk-informed decisions as to how best protect heritage and meet disaster mitigation objectives.

This approach provides tremendous value including:

  • Preserving our heritage
  • Embrace local heritage, resources, and methodologies
  • Limit damage and aesthetic impact
  • Cost-effective solutions
  • Maintain functionality of sites
  • Enhance life safety

Planning for disasters in advance significantly reduces damage to tangible and intangible heritage, including historic sites, structures and their collections.
