Denver Metro BOMA wants to keep you in the know. Please check  this page frequently for information on how to keep your employees, tenants and building and its surrounding property safe.

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.

Facility Safety Adminstrator

Per the City and County of Denver and the Denver Fire Department, as of January 2023, it is now mandatory for all high-rise buildings to have at least one licensed Fire Safety Administrator (FSA) who has completed the required FSA training.

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.

BOMA International Civil Unrest Guide

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.
