Date: Wednesday 27th February 2019

West Midlands Museum Development in partnership with Historic England, English Heritage and West Midlands Fire and Rescue Service is offering two courses to help those caring for historic assets.

Delegates are encouraged to attend both events but will still benefit from attending either course which will be held at Handsworth Community Fire Station, 41 Rookery Road, Birmingham B21 9QU.

Creating an Emergency Plan

The second of the two courses concentrates on creating an emergency plan. The modules will help you understand:

  • how to identify risks and where to direct efforts to address those risks
  • how to prepare and present an emergency plan
  • how to prepare grab sheets and floor plans
  • how to prepare a desktop exercise and keep your plan up to date

The first course will be held the previous day on 26 February and covers ‘Prevention and Protection’.  More information about this course can be found here.

Both courses are only open to staff, Trustees and volunteers from Accredited museums and those officially Working Towards Accreditation in the West Midlands.

The training supports the revised Accreditation Standard Organisational Health: 3.3 A Clear, Workable Emergency Plan 

Lunch and refreshments will be provided at both of these free events.  Places are limited and the closing date for bookings is 9am, 4 February 2019.  If you have any questions please contact
