Assessing the Risk Insurance Information –Broker/agent name, business and home phone numbers –Name of insurance carrier –Policy number(s) –Policy coverage, limits and deductibles, copies of policies – if possible. Review of Tennant Leases and Insurance Coverage –Who is responsible for insuring the leased premises? –What perils must each party cover, all risk or special perils? –What are the policy limits of the insurance coverage? –How much damage does there have to be before the leased premises are considered inhabitable? –What duty does the tenant have to continue to pay rent if the leased premises are not habitable? –Are the tenants required to provide the owner with a Certificate of liability and/or Evidence of Property Insurance?
Determine the Team Communications Staff Responsibilities and Special Skills –Identify authorized person(s) –Who is responsible for dealing with civil authorities? –Who is responsible for notifying the insurance carriers? –Who has the authority to authorize emergency services? –Should someone be in charge of protecting or removing vital records? –Who is the designated public relations spokesperson? –Which staff member will take the Emergency Procedures Manual –Who will coordinate the flow of people and information? –Similarly, you should survey your staff for their lesser known talents and training
Evacuation Plan Who is authorized to call for an evacuation? Identify the alarm that will notify employees to evacuate. The alarm must be identifiable and able to be received by all occupants, including those with disabilities such as hearing or sight. Assign persons to assist those with disabilities in evacuation. Identify who is responsible for shutting down critical systems. Specify the gathering place outside the building and how occupants will be accounted for.
Tenant Information How many people occupy each suite? Which suites are occupied or vacant? Which occupants may need assistance in case of an evacuation, especially residents with physical disabilities? Which units house families with children and what are the ages of the children? Which tenants might use or store potentially dangerous or flammable materials in their units?(e.g. oxygen tanks for breathing assistance) For commercial buildings, names and home phone numbers of individual office managers or designated contact person for each space. Types of businesses in the building, and specifically Insurance Companies - Knowing the insurance carrier, broker/agent of each of the tenants' will allow you to more effectively to resolve claims in your property.
