TIP OF THE MONTH      
 
Do you have a relationship with your local emergency managers?
 
Emergency managers include police, fire, and offices of emergency management. Consider inviting any or all of these folks to your building for a meet and greet. Share your building floor plans with them. Talk to them about your concerns around emergencies in your space or community. It could be the beginning of a great relationship!
