- We strongly recommend that each tenant establish an internal procedure for handling emergency situations. Appropriate representatives should be appointed and given the responsibility of coordinating emergency procedures in cooperation with the management office. All employees should understand what your emergency coordinator’s role is during emergency situations. The management office should have the name and telephone numbers (both during and after-hours) of the emergency coordinator.
The emergency coordinator should be familiar with the location of all emergency exits, equipment and telephone numbers of all emergency services. The emergency coordinator for the building is the General Manager. The backup emergency coordinator is the Assistant Property Manager. The emergency control center is the Management Office, which initiates all evacuation, facility shut-down procedures, and layouts needed to effect emergency action plans. The Management Office should be aware of any special or unique situations within the tenant’s leased premises such as:
- Mobility impaired personnel.
- Unusual working hours.
- Special equipment or materials which would be either helpful or harmful in the event or any emergency.
- Personnel with a history of health problems, such as heart conditions, diabetes, etc.
