Special fire training available for cathedrals and greater churches

Specialist church insurer Ecclesiastical invited delegates from Cathedrals and greater churches from the South West and West Midlands to learn how to reduce the risk of fire at these iconic buildings

The one-day fire safety course at Gloucester Cathedral was run by Ecclesiastical’s church risk specialists Claire Attenborough and Kevin Thomas, and featured talks from Steve Emery, Oxford University’s fire officer and chartered security professional and heritage fire consultant, Stewart Kidd

Claire Attenborough, principal risk management surveyor at Ecclesiastical, said:

“Helping our customers reduce their fire and security risk is a fundamental part of our business. It is particularly important when you are insuring buildings that are part of the nation’s history. A major fire at a cathedral or greater church would be a huge loss to the country, so anything we can do to help protect these buildings is very important.”

The specialist insurer is holding three more events in London, Leeds and Peterborough during April and May 2019.
