At the time of move-in, each tenant is asked to complete the Floor Response Team Form designating personnel that will be responsible for taking charge in the event of an emergency. It is up to each tenant to assure that this form is updated when designated personnel leave employment of the firm or for other reasons are no longer able to perform the outlined duties of emergency personnel.
While the Property Management Office may periodically host Floor Response Team training, the general responsibilities are outlined here. It is the responsibility of all Floor Response Team personnel to familiarize themselves with these guidelines as well as all of the building’s Emergency Procedures.
The two primary Floor Response Team positions are:
- Floor Warden - Responsible for controlling staff in event of emergency and explaining/overseeing all emergency actions.
Each tenant should designate an alternate Floor Warden in case the Floor Warden is out of the office when an emergency occurs.
- Area Leader - Designated to coordinate emergency procedures within a particular office area. The number of Area Leaders should correspond to the number of occupants within your office and the size of your office.
