The devastating April 2019 Notre Dame fire shockingly brought to the forefront of every preservationist’s mind how quickly hundreds of years’ worth of historic material can go up in smoke. While this fire’s aftermath is sure to kindle years of study and may eventually provide valuable lessons and technologies for improving fire safety, cultural resources around the world continue to be at risk for damage and destruction by fire, flood, earthquake, sea-level rise, and other harms. In many (perhaps most) cases, this risk arises not from a failure to deploy complex and expensive technological safety devices, but instead from owners and institutions simply not having taken the time to systematically Consider what disasters their resources are most likely to face.
