Emergency Procedures Introduction

Protection of your employees and the Building is at the forefront in the minds of the Management Team at 550 West Jackson. We feel that by communicating with you about your role in 550 West Jackson’s life safety program, we can eliminate or reduce the risk of life threatening situations.

This Section provides valuable information to ensure maximum protection for your employees. It should be read carefully by key managers and designated Safety Team members in your office. It is essential that these procedures are fully understood and followed should an occasion arise.

In the event of an emergency, the safe and rapid evacuation of the affected area is the responsibility of the Tenant and the individual employee. It is imperative that each employee become familiar with the procedures described on the following pages. If there are any questions, please call the Office of the Building - (312) 715-0550 - before an emergency arises!

We have prepared the Emergency Procedures Manuals to outline the procedures for tenants of 550 West Jackson. Additional training sessions are provided on a continuing basis, and evacuation drills are held semi-annually.

We are pleased to have you as a tenant, and hope that you will put forth the effort necessary to enhance the safety and security of all of us at 550 West Jackson. Thank you for your cooperation.
