September is National Preparedness Month
Be Informed. Be Prepared.
September marks National Preparedness Month, an annual campaign coordinated by the U.S. Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) to encourage Americans to make preparedness a part of their daily lives. In BOMA's latest vlog, BOMA International’s Director of Federal Affairs Jason Todd discusses one way BOMA is partnering with the U.S. Department of Homeland Security to increase preparedness in the commercial real estate industry.
More information on the “If You See Something, Say Something” campaign and the Real Estate Information Sharing and Analysis Center (REISAC) can be found on BOMA International’s Security & Emergency Preparedness webpage, which also features links to a number of other preparedness resources specifically geared towards commercial real estate. BOMA is also offering its Emergency Preparedness Guidebook, the industry’s most up-to-date guide to help property professionals prepare for and respond to a broad range of potential threats, at a discounted price during National Preparedness Month.
