      Considering that many emergencies tend to happen when construction occurs at a museum/cultural institution, what are the best things that museums and the contracting construction crew can do in order to prevent an emergency from happening?

      Ideas that I had come up with are to move archives off-site during the construction, keep staff and the local fire department informed of these proceedings, and to have an end of day walk-through to make sure everything is unplugged and safely stored (crew and staff need to sign off on this). I haven’t been able to find any literature that deals with this issue specifically, but perhaps other people may know of something?
