Category: Press

In the wake of the horrible fire at Notre-Dame cathedral, local and national news outlets attended the testing of the 1754 Christ Church steeple’s exterior sprinkler system.One reason we did this was to show symbolic solidarity with Notre Dame,” said Barbara Hogue, executive director of the Christ Church Preservation Trust told the Associated Press. “But it’s also because we’re about to start renovations here, too, and we thought it was really prudent to start by testing our fire system, to be sure that, in the event something happens, we were prepared.”
