- Your name
- Your Building’s name and address
- Your specific floor number, and the exact location of the emergency
- Any pertinent details of the accident or illness

- Call the Front Desk at 202 466 4067.
- Inform the Lobby Attendant that you have called 911 and briefly describe the nature of the emergency.

The Management, Engineering and Security staff will do all we can to ensure the patient’s comfort while awaiting the arrival of the medical rescue team. Although we assume no liability for our assistance, we strongly encourage Tenants and employees to become familiar with First Aid, as well as the contact information and protocol used to alert emergency services.
We invite you to learn how to implement your own emergency preparedness plans by using the resources from our PREP website.
