Installing a water-operated fire-fighting system
In 2020, the installation of a water-operated firefighting system across the Monastery campus was completed. This included a fire detection system in exposed parts of the campus, underground and overground pipes, fire hydrants, hoses and pumping facilities with access to a water storage tank – essential to protect the Monastery, artefacts within it, and those who live and work there.
