Join us for Emergency Preparedness Month with four discussions focusing on emergency preparedness within the DMV region. These discussions begin on Thursday, September 10th and run every Thursday until October 1st at 10:00am. The four discussions will be led my Emergency Preparedness Committee Members who will share how they responded to the life safety issues of the pandemic and civil unrest. Then we have a facilitated discussion with other members to explore other solutions to the challenges we are all experiencing.

On Thursday, September 24, you will hear from a panel of experts who will discuss how organized protests can quickly and unpredictably erupt into riots, looting, and civil unrest. It is up to you as a property manager to do what you can to secure your buildings and inform your tenants in advance and as needed during these situations if they get out of hand. Planning for a civil unrest event at your property is imperative with the current political climate and national civil unrest. Attend this discussion to learn best practices about
