Tornadoes or Severe Weather:
In most cases, advance warning in the event of a tornado, severe storms or high winds is not likely.
Therefore, if a tornado or severe storms are approaching the building, immediately notify the Office of the Building at (312) 525-8100. Building personnel will monitor the weather and tune into local news cast for additional information. If conditions warrant, building security will notify building tenants via the building Public Address System that severe weather is in the area and for tenants to begin moving into the core areas of the building (i.e., stairwells, restrooms, elevator lobby) taking cover.
Whenever possible, do not enter the lobby or leave the building. The greatest danger will be that of flying glass and objects; therefore, attempt to locate where the maximum numbers of walls are between you and the exterior of the building. Once weather conditions improve, building security will give all tenants in the building the “all clear” announcement.
Power Failure or Flooding
In the event of a Power Failure or Flooding, the closing of the building may be recommended, depending on the severity of the problem. The building is equipped with a backup generator that will provide emergency lighting so tenants can exit the building. If evacuation is necessary, tenants will be given instructions via the buildings Public Address System.
In the event of a power outage and the Office of the Building’s phone system is down (312) 525-8100, please call 9312) 641-3278 to contact Building Security as this phone line is the building’s emergency line that will remain active in the event of a power outage.
