Preparedness Position Statement >>

Building owners and managers must develop or update a comprehensive emergency preparedness plan for each building based on reasonable threat analyses to prepare for future emergencies and to provide a safe working environment for their tenants. Industry guidelines and any federal, state or local regulations must recognize that emergency preparedness plans for individual buildings will differ and that a “one-size-fits-all” approach is unworkable and ill-advised.
