Before and After Disaster Strikes: Developing the Emergency Procedures Manual, Fourth Edition is designed to be a guide and resource for real estate managers as they create the emergency procedures plan and develop the emergency procedures manual for the properties they manage.
Designed with an all-hazards approach in mind, this fourth edition walks real estate managers through the necessary considerations when preparing for and reacting to a disaster – natural or manmade. The focused chapters provide an in-depth exploration of the hazards posed to residential, commercial, industrial, and medical office properties and how they may be addressed.
Covering more than just natural disasters, this edition provides an extensive look at how to address building emergencies from fires, power outages, or hazardous materials spills, to acts of crime and terrorism.
This new edition also includes a section dedicated to exploring and implementing business continuity practices into your emergency procedures plan, demonstrating the importance of business continuity principles, while also providing concrete considerations for how to implement these practices into your business.
Designed to accompany this book is a set of emergency planning forms, which were assembled by the Institute of Real Estate Management (IREM®) and its industry partners. These forms, accessible online, are provided in an effort to help establish a baseline of preparedness for any property, and may be customized or adapted to fit each application.
