Disaster Advice Seminar (Wednesday, 9th December)
The RCB Property Department would like to encourage parish representatives from across the island to consider attending a free online seminar on preventing or reducing the risk of disaster striking a property (e.g. by fire, floods, storms, lightning strikes or vandalism), and to lessen the damage caused should a disaster occur.  The seminar is being organised by the Irish Government’s Department of Housing, Local Government and Heritage but will include advice that would be helpful in both jurisdictions.
