Time is extremely important in the case of a medical emergency. JLL Management recommends that all tenants keep first aid kits, including emergency supplies, unlocked and fully stocked in their suites. It is the tenant’s responsibility to make sure that employees are aware of its location and proper use of the supplies.
THE PERSON WHO DISCOVERS THE EMERGENCY SHOULD:
- Dial 911 or the local emergency number.
- Provide the dispatcher with the following information:
- Type of Medical Emergency
- Location of Medical Emergency
- Company Name
- Physical building address [not building name]
- Floor and Suite Number
- Telephone Number
- Listen to the dispatcher for any additional instructions before hanging up.
NOTE: It is crucial that the injured person is not moved. Try to keep the injured person comfortable without moving, unless a life-threatening hazard exists.
FIRST AID/EMERGENCY SUPPLIES
The more supplies you have on hand when an emergency occurs, the better prepared you are to deal with injuries. It is recommended that, at a minimum, you have the following available in your tenant space:
- First aid kit
- Cell phone
- Flashlights and fresh batteries
- Transistor radio
- Latex gloves for blood borne pathogen protection
- Heavy gloves in case of broken glass
- Emergency Analog Telephone to connect to a facsimile line that will operate in the case of a power failure
- Whistles to get the attention of those around you
- Walking shoes to help you evacuate quickly
