Preparedness Month Is in Full Swing (9/20/2015)

September is the U.S. Federal Emergency Management Agency’s (FEMA) National Preparedness Month, which makes now the perfect time to revisit your organization’s emergency plan. This year, FEMA is devoting each week of September to a different preparedness scenario, and BOMA International is supplementing these efforts by posting resources on its website specifically geared towards the commercial real estate industry on each topic.

Check out BOMA International’s Security and Emergency Preparedness webpage for new content on how to prepare for floods and wildfires, the first two topics of the month. Next week, you will find useful tools to prepare your building in the event of a hurricane. As we enter the second half of hurricane season, it’s critical that your organization is equipped with the necessary resources to respond to hurricane conditions.
