A lot of discussion around the Emergency Action Plan (attached) and the need to have mock/scheduled fire drills. 


Joe will coordinate train the trainer sessions with those

identified in the plan and their role. 


EAP plans have been distributed to those impacted

electronically and should be displayed on each floor. 


Shevelle took the follow up to obtain a list of those individuals that require assistance/unable to take the stairs by floor. 


Rob Huckins is no longer active and should be replaced on the 10th floor. 


Confirmed with Security, each individual should swipe into the building when returning from an evaluation.  Guards should be checking badges as well.


Reminded of the proper use of electric outlets, cautioned on

overloading the circuits, there should be no additional items plugged

into the outlets (crock pots, heaters, smoke/popcorn machines), including extension cords or power strips unless authorized by Facilities.


Joe mentioned the possibility of starting a stretching program to help prevent fatigue, neck strain.  Sitting is the new smoking.  Important to stand periodically.
