As commercial office buildings continue to be at risk from natural and man-made disasters, BOMA/Chicago actively meets with our state, federal and local partners to discuss threats and countermeasures. As awareness about threats increases, and best practices for prevention, response and recovery emerge, BOMA/Chicago develops standards and situational practice sessions for property management teams to ensure their tenants, staff and buildings are safe in an emergency or natural disaster. Whether severe weather, active shooter incidents, terrorism, or fire safety, BOMA/Chicago partners with local, state and federal first responders, and brings the latest training and resources to members.
