Building Alarm Procedures
The following is what takes place when the building goes into Alarm:
The entire building is notified that the alarm has been activated. This is done by a pre-signal of four
beeping tones, which can be heard over the red speakers, which are located throughout the tenant's
space and common areas. After the four beeps have sounded the following taped message will be
heard twice throughout the building:
"Attention please. Attention Please.
The signal tone you have just heard indicates a report of an emergency in this building. If
your floor evacuation signal sounds after this message, walk to the nearest stairway and
exit the floor. All handicapped occupants shall follow the building evacuation plan. While
the report is being verified, occupants on other floors should await further instruction. "
After the message is completed, the floor on which the alarm originated, as well as the floor above
and the floor below, will see lights flashing and hear a loud evacuation signal (slow, whoop) over the
red speakers. The floors that do not have flashing lights or an evacuation signal will continue to wait
for further instructions as previously heard in the taped message.
Occupants who see the flashing lights and hear the evacuation signal should exit their office space in
an orderly fashion via the stairway and evacuate the building as per the EVACUATION PLAN. DO
NOT USE THE ELEVATORS.
Should the alarm be verified as false, the Fire Department will give the "all clear" and a live public
address announcement will be broadcast throughout the building.
During all stages of an alarm condition, the building public address system may be used by the fire

Emergency Procedures: Chemical/Biological Event
In case of a chemical or biological weapon attack, authorities will instruct you on the best course of action.
This may be to evacuate the area immediately, to seek shelter at a designated location or to take immediate
shelter where you are and seal the premises.
The best way to protect yourself is to take emergency preparedness measures ahead of time and to get
medical attention as soon as possible, if needed. The following pages provide important life safety
information in the event of a chemical, biological or nuclear attack.

Chemical Event
Biological Event
How to be Prepared
What to Do After an Attack
Chemical Event
Chemical warfare agents are poisonous vapors, aerosols, liquids or solids that have toxic effects on people,
animals or plants. They can be released by bombs, sprayed from aircraft, boats or vehicles or used as a
liquid to create a hazard to people and the environment. Some chemical agents may be odorless and
tasteless. They can have an immediate effect (a few seconds to a few minutes) or a delayed effect (several
hours to several days). While potentially lethal, chemical agents are difficult to deliver in lethal
concentrations. Outdoors, the agents often dissipate rapidly. Chemical agents are also difficult to produce.
Six Types Of Agents:
Lung-damaging (pulmonary) agents such as phosgene
Cyanide
Vesicants or blister agents such as mustard
Nerve agents such as GA (tabun), GB (sarin), GO (soman), GF, and VX
Incapacitating agents such as BZ
Riot-control agents (similar to MACE)
Biological Event
Biological agents are organisms or toxins that can kill or incapacitate people, livestock and crops. The three
basic groups of biological agents, which would likely be used as weapons are: Bacteria, Viruses and toxins.
Bacteria
Bacteria are small free-living organisms that reproduce by simple division and are easy to grow. The
diseases they produce often respond to treatment with antibiotics.
Viruses
Viruses are organisms, which require living cells in which to reproduce and are intimately dependent upon
the body they infect. Viruses produce diseases, which generally do not respond to antibiotics. However,
antiviral drugs are sometimes effective.
Toxins
Toxins are poisonous substances found in, and extracted from, living plants, animals or microorganisms;
some toxins can be produced or altered by chemical means. Some toxins can be treated with specific
antitoxins and selected drugs.
Biological Event (Continued)
Most biological agents are difficult to grow and maintain. Many break down quickly when exposed to
sunlight and other environmental factors, while others such as anthrax spores are very long lived. They can
be dispersed by spraying them in the air, or infecting animals that carry the disease to humans as well
through food and water contamination.
Aerosols - Biological agents are dispersed into the air, forming a fine mist that may drift for miles. Inhaling
the agent may cause disease in people or animals.
Animals - Some diseases are spread by insects and animals, such as fleas, mice, flies and mosquitoes.
Deliberately spreading diseases through livestock is also referred to as agro-terrorism.
Food and water contamination - Some pathogenic organisms and toxins may persist in food and water
supplies. Most microbes can be killed, and toxins are deactivated by cooking food and boiling water.
Person-to-person spread of a few infectious agents is also possible. Humans have been the source of
infection for smallpox, plague and the Lassa viruses.
How to prepare for a Chemical or Biological Attack
Assemble a disaster supply kit and be sure to include:
Battery-powered commercial radio with extra batteries.
Non-perishable food and drinking water.
Roll of duct tape and scissors.
Plastic for doors, windows and vents for the room in which you will shelter in place - this should be an
internal room where you can block out air that may contain hazardous chemical or biological agents.
(To save critical time during an emergency, sheeting should be pre-measured and cut for each
opening.)
First aid kit with sanitation supplies including soap, water and bleach.
What To Do During A Chemical Or Biological Attack:
Listen to your radio for instructions from authorities such as whether to remain inside or to evacuate.
If You Are Instructed To Remain In The Building Where You Are Or Other Shelter During A Chemical
Or Biological Attack:
Turn off all ventilation including furnaces, air conditioners, vents and fans.
Seek shelter in an internal room, preferably one without windows. Seal the room with duct tape and
plastic sheeting. Ten square feet of floor space per person will provide sufficient air to prevent carbon
dioxide build-up for up to five hours.
Remain in protected areas where toxic vapors are reduced or eliminated, and be sure to take your
battery-operated radio with you.
If You Are Caught In An Unprotected Area, You Should:
Attempt to get up-wind of the contaminated area.
Attempt to find shelter as quickly as possible.
Listen to your radio for official instructions.
What To Do After A Chemical Attack
Immediate symptoms of exposure to chemical agents may include blurred vision, eye irritation, difficulty
breathing and nausea. A person affected by a chemical or biological agent requires immediate attention by
professional medical personnel. If medical help is not immediately available, decontaminate yourself and
assist in decontaminating others. Decontamination is needed within minutes of exposure to minimize health
consequences. (However, you should not leave the safety of a shelter to go outdoors, to help others until
authorities announce it is safe to do so.) Use extreme caution when helping others who have been exposed
to chemical agents:
Remove all clothing and other items in contact with the body. Contaminated clothing normally removed over
the head should be cut off to avoid contact with the eyes, nose, and mouth. Put into a plastic bag if possible.
Decontaminate hands using soap and water. Remove eyeglasses or contact lenses. Put glasses in a pan of
household bleach to decontaminate.
Important reminders for actions after a chemical attack:
Remove all items in contact with the body.
Flush eyes with lots of water.
Gently wash face and hair with soap and water; then thoroughly rinse with water.
Decontaminate other body areas likely to have been contaminated. Blot (do not swab or scrape) with
a cloth soaked in soapy water and rinse with clear water.
Change into uncontaminated clothes. Clothing stored in drawers or closets is likely to be
uncontaminated.
If possible, proceed to a medical facility for screening.
What To Do After A Biological Attack
In many biological attacks, people will not know they have been exposed to an agent. In such situations, the
In many biological attacks, people will not know they have been exposed to an agent. In such situations, the
first evidence of an attack may be when you notice symptoms of the disease caused by an agent exposure,
and you should seek immediate medical attention for treatment.
In some situations, like the anthrax letters sent in 2001, people may be alerted to a potential exposure. If
this is the case, pay close attention to all official warnings and instructions on how to proceed. The delivery
of medical services for a biological event may be handled differently to respond to increased demand.
Again, it will be important for you to pay attention to official instructions via radio, television and emergency
alert systems
If your skin or clothing comes in contact with a visible, potentially infectious substance. You should remove
and bag your clothes and personal items and wash yourself with warm soapy water immediately. Put on
clean clothes and seek medical assistance.
Emergency Procedures: Power Failure/Elevator Malfunction
Power Failure
If the Building power supply is interrupted, the emergency electric generator will activate within a matter of
seconds. The generator will generate sufficient electricity for limited elevator operation and emergency
lighting. The Management Office will keep you apprised of any information from National Grid regarding the
status of the power failure.
Elevator Entrapment
If a person becomes trapped in an elevator, they can request help by pressing the emergency intercom
button in the car, which will ring at the security desk.
1. The Secuirty Officer will contact the 24-hour elevator service number.
2. Determine which elevator is stuck and what floor the elevator is stuck on.
3. Find out how many people are in the car and get a description of the problem.
4. Provide reassurance to the person(s) that the appropriate parties are being contacted and that help is
on the way.
5. During normal business hours, security will contact Building Management, who will contact the
elevator service company and request an emergency service call for a trapped person. After normal
business hours, security will contact the elevator service company directly and request an emergency
service call for a trapped person. In both cases, security will get an estimate of the time it will take for
the service person to respond.
6. Security staff will continue to remain in regular contact with the person(s) stuck in the elevator,
informing them of the progress of the efforts to get them out. Security will provide an optimistic and
reassuring presence, assisting the trapped person(s) in any way possible; for example, by calling
family members or business associates for them.
7. If the person in the elevator panics or suffers a medical emergency before the elevator service
company arrives, security will contact the Boston Fire Department and request an emergency
extraction.
Emergency Procedures: Medical Emergency
IN THE EVENT OF A MEDICAL EMERGENCY:
1. Do not move the person. If necessary, administer first aid.
2. Call Paramedics. Dial 911. Tell them your floor and suite number and a concise, accurate description
of the emergency.
3. Call Building Security at 617-267-4537 We will hold an elevator ready for the paramedic team.
4. If a private physician has been called, let us know, and we will escort the doctor to your office.
5. Ask the individual if they have any existing medical conditions or are on medication.
6. Post one person at the elevator to lead the medical team to the person in distress.
Emergency Procedures: Bomb Threat
Bomb threats are relatively rare and, fortunately, are almost always false alarms. Nonetheless, the potential
risk is serious and must be treated as such. You may become aware of a bomb threat in two ways.
You receive the call
1. Attempt to keep the caller on the line as long as possible. Get as much information as possible.
Ask the caller to repeat the message.
Write down every word spoken by the person.
Ask when the device will detonate.
Ask the location of the device.
Pay particular attention to background noises that might give a clue as to where the call is
being made.
Pay close attention to the speech and voice patterns of the caller.
Remain calm.
2. Call 911
3. As soon as the caller hangs up, complete a Bomb Threat Questionnaire. Click here to Download a
Bomb Threat Questionnaire
4. Immediately notify Building Management and Security and follow their instructions.
5. Once the bomb squad has cleared the threat, resume normal procedures.
You are notified of a Bomb Threat by another building tenant.
1. Take the person to a private location in the building and have them complete the Bomb Threat
Questionnaire. Click here to download a Bomb Threat Questionnaire.
2. Immediately notify Building Management and Security and follow their instructions.
3. If questioned by other persons in the building, advise them that the building has received a bomb
threat and the police and bomb squad have been notified. Further, advise them that all persons
entering or remaining in the building do so at their own risk.
Once the bomb squad has cleared the threat, resume normal procedures.
Emergency Procedures: Earthquake
When an earthquake happens – keep calm, DO NOT run or panic, REMAIN WHERE YOU ARE and take
shelter. If you are indoors, stay there, take immediate shelter under your desk, a table, in public lobbies or
exit stairwells. Stay away from windows, outside doors, large bookshelves or fixtures, etc.
If you are outdoors, remain there, but keep away from buildings, as glass or other objects could loosen and
fall. Do not attempt to enter any building until advised it is safe to do so. Be prepared for AFTER SHOCKS.
AFTER THE EARTHQUAKE
Use extreme caution in entering buildings or work areas; DON’T use lighted matches, lanterns, or
torches until you are advised there are no gas leaks, etc.
Stay away from damaged areas.
Inspect your offices for damage and provide an itemized report to the Management Office.
Advise local utilities of power outages or potential gas leaks.
Emergency Procedures: Flood
In the event of a flood that may cause damage to tenant property or affect the normal operation of the
building, designated tenant managers will be contacted by Building Management personnel, including after
business hours.
The first priority is to ensure that no personal injury occurs as the result of a flood. The second priority is to
discover the cause and prevent or minimize additional flooding.
Once the flooding has been contained, clean-up operations will be commenced. Tenants will need to
contact their insurance carrier for any damage to their property.
Emergency Procedures: Severe Weather
When severe weather conditions become apparent, the U.S. Weather Bureau describes conditions by two
(2) classifications, a Watch or a Warning. This applies to the reporting of severe thunderstorms, the
approach of weather conditions favoring the formation of tornadoes, a hurricane condition, a winter storm
condition, etc. A Watch becomes effective when atmospheric conditions are right to produce the particular
weather phenomenon. A Warning means that the weather condition has been spotted and prompt action
must be taken for safety.
Except in very rare circumstances, the decision to evacuate the building based on the above weather
reports will not be made by Building Management, but rather by each Tenant Company. However, in the
event these conditions do exist, the following guidelines should be kept in mind:
Move away from outside windows. If the windows in your offices are supplied with blinds, close the
blinds (this will provide protection from broken glass).
Do not panic.
If evacuated, lock all desk drawers and take all items of value with you.
If evacuated, use a route that is in the building interior and stay away from large expanses of glass
and windows.
Use the stairwells rather than the elevators.
If evacuated, do not return to your office until advised to do so by the management office.
Emergency Procedures: Civil Unrest
Should a riot or civil disturbance start outside the Building, the security guards will immediately lock all
entrances to the Building. The police will be notified. We will keep you informed.
If a disturbance should occur in the main lobby, all elevators will be turned off at the first floor and the police
will be summoned.
