Each tenant should download a hardcopy of the Tenant Emergency Manual. It is recommended that floor wardens be appointed to implement emergency procedures. The number of floor wardens needed depends upon the number of employees and the size of the office. The floor wardens must (1) be intelligent and capable of providing leadership in an emergency situation, and, (2) work in their respective areas within the building.
Our recommendations to the tenant include the following:
- Designate evacuation routes, which will best promote an evacuation that is both quick, and safe. Floor wardens should familiarize themselves with building evacuation routes and clearly communicate this information to all employees.
- Designate a location outside of the building for everyone in your office to assemble. The meeting location should be well away from the building and should not block or disrupt the arrival and/or operation of emergency personnel.
- Designate a floor warden to have a list of disabled employees that they
can check against the list of employees that have evacuated.
