Get Prepared During National Preparedness Month​

FEMANPM2016_logo_vFinal (1).pngSeptember is National Preparedness Month, an annual campaign sponsored by the U.S. Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) to encourage Americans to take steps to prepare for emergencies in their homes, businesses and communities. This year, FEMA is devoting each week of September to a different level of preparedness. To supplement FEMA's efforts, BOMA International will be posting resources on its website specifically geared towards the commercial real estate industry on each theme.

Check back each week for new resources, such as how to create or strengthen a commercial building's emergency preparedness plan.

More information on National Preparedness Month can be found by visiting For any questions on how to get involved, please contact BOMA’s Manager of Advocacy, Dylan Isenberg, at​
