Public Safety Task Force
In this ever increasing time of unrest, it is critical that our BOMA Members are able to be aware of the resources available to report incidents on their properties. The Denver Metro BOMA Board created a Public Safety Task Force comprised of of Senior Leaders in our member Companies. Even if it is not 9-1-1 worthy, reporting is the key for us to help you receive more city resources to protect your staff, tenants and property.

Civil Unrest Resources
What Is Civil Unrest?
Peaceful demonstrations and protests that abide by the law, such as the Women's March, do not constitute civil unrest. Civil unrest is typically defined by law enforcement as a gathering of three or more people, in reaction to an event, with the intention of causing a public disturbance in violation of the law. Civil unrest typically involves damage to property or injury to other people.
BOMA International has published a preparedness guide to help keep your building safe during the 2020 elections. This guide was reviewed and approved by the Denver Police Department and recommend it as a good resource for property managers.
Colorado Emergency Preparedness Guide
The purpose of the State Emergency Response Guide is to offer quick reference procedures for handling an emergency situation in the work environment. Per 8 CCR 1507-41 Rules and Regulations Concerning Building Security and Occupant Protection, this Emergency Response Guide serves as the standardized guide to be used by State employees during emergency situations. The Table of Contents lists types of emergencies that an employee may encounter.
