|Your Role as a Floor Warden:|
Be a visible leader in your company and on your floor. Share information, encourage advanced
planning and act as the calming force in any building emergency. See our example of a
Floor Warden Letter to distribute to all tenants
on your floor.
Maintain a current roster of all physically disabled persons on your assigned
floor and include at least two Special Assistants per physically disabled person. Provide a
copy to Property Management and update routinely. Ensure that each special assistant for
physically disabled persons knows their his/her in an evacuation.
Know emergency exit routes, stairwell locations and where the stairwells exit
onto the street. Take a walk down both stairwells to become familiar with the
evacuation experience and stairwell exit locations.
Know where emergency intercoms are located and how to use them. Intercoms are in the
stairwells on every fifth floor starting with the Floor 5.
Report any potential fire hazards to Property Management through your office manager
or corporate facilities manager.
Be familiar with your company's own emergency response and security procedures, along with
those for the building. Information specific to the Washington Mutual Tower is provided on
our Emergency Procedures and
Office Security Tips pages. Also be sure to have
additional Safety Resources and important numbers
