Emergency Preparedness Guidebook
BOMA International’s Emergency Preparedness Guidebook: The Property Professional’s Resource for Developing Emergency Plans for Natural and Human-Based Threats is the industry’s most up-to-date guide to help property professionals prepare for and respond to a broad range of potential threats. The guidebook walks the user step-by-step through the four phases of emergency management—mitigation, preparedness, response and recovery—to help ensure tenant safety and building security during emergency situations.
Several types of emergencies are covered
- Accidents such as fires, public health emergencies, elevator outages and airplane collisions
- Earth and weather events such as floods, earthquakes, hurricanes and tornadoes
- Criminal and Terror Acts such as terrorism, bombs, active shooter and workplace violence.
There is also an in-depth chapter on building an effective communications plan and checklists throughout to help users organize every step of their preparedness plan.
The Emergency Preparedness Guidebook: The Property Professional’s Resource for Developing Emergency Plans for Natural and Human-Based Threats is authored by Lawrence J. Schoen, P.E., Fellow ASHRAE, and is an update to BOMA’s 2002 Emergency Preparedness Guidebook.
