Salvage & Damage
The concept of preparing for and planning to deal with the consequences of fires (or other incident) is now well established in the area of heritage management. It has been clear from the experience gained during major incidents in historic properties that there are major advantages in planning to deal with the impact of a fire on the fabric and contents of a historic building.
Skilful utilisation of even restricted resources can make a considerable impact on both the quantity and cost of fire damage. This can ensure that the property can recover more quickly from the effects of fire.
The application of a logical plan permits the best utilisation of available resources. Heritage Fire and Safety have assisted many properties and historic agencies, including Historic Environment Scotland, develop Salvage and Damage Limitation Plans to ensure limit the effect of fire on their property.
