Search of Premises
A search of Tenant premises cannot be performed effectively by police or Brookfield personnel as they are unfamiliar with the environment and cannot readily identify items that are foreign or out of place. Personnel who work in the area of the threat are able to perform a more thorough search. It is recommended that your Life Safety Team utilize employee volunteers to assist with the search. They will be supported by Security.
During the search procedure, remember this rule: Look for something that doesn’t belong, that is out of the ordinary, or out of place. If an unidentified or suspicious object is found, DO NOT TOUCH IT.
In the event that a suspicious object is found, police or Security may recommend a partial or complete evacuation.
The search of public areas in Brookfield Place is the responsibility of building staff and its contractors.
