Monday April 17th In The Party Room
On Monday April 17th at 7pm, join our team in the 2nd Floor Party Room for a presentation on Active Shooter response and preparing for Fire Emergencies.
No matter the emergency, being prepared, alert and aware of your surroundings, and listening for instructions from authorities, can make a difference. Just about any emergency situation can be chaotic and unpredictable as they evolve. Staying connected and prepared mentally can be grounding and help in a substantial way.
Remembering a few simple steps and concepts can make all the difference. We’ll be going over some of the basics in the meeting and taking questions with a specific focus on Active Shooter incidents and Fires. All Owners and residents are strongly urged to join us:
If you can’t make the meeting, just…
…and read the Resident Emergency Procedures Manual, available at www.ptcondo.com/library.
We hope everyone available will join us for a ZOOM meeting on Monday March 27th at 7pm to review emergency response procedures. We will be focusing specifically on Active Shooter Response and Fire Emergencies.
Shootings and active shooter incidents have become far too familiar to us recently, both in our region and nationwide, and indeed even worldwide. How individuals respond in the event of such an incident, can mean all the difference in surviving.
Just what do we do if someone starts shooting or waiving a weapon around? That question is rarely answered. While we’ve all seen the horror in news coverage and pictures and memorials over social media, what if such an incident occurs even closer to home? What steps can individuals take to even minimally increase the chance of survival?
We do have specific procedure for our staff and residents to consider and follow in the event of such a situation. To present these materials, we will hold a Town Hall Meeting on Monday March 27th, via ZOOM.
PTCA Resident Emergency Procedures Meeting Via ZOOM
Mar 27, 2023 07:00 PM Central Time (US and Canada)
Meeting ID #891 1663 4202

While we can’t guarantee or in any way warrant these procedures will prevent such an incident, or prevent injury and loss of life in the event the worst happens, it is our hope even a small amount of information and preparation can help. We will review steps suggested by DHS if you find yourself caught up in a such a situation either here at Park Tower or even elsewhere.
We will also spend some time reviewing the basics of High Rise fire response and preparation. Remaining calm and following some pretty simple instructions, can be very helpful in most situations. In light of the recent fire event in Kenwood, we will talk about what happened and what residents should expect and plan for should something similar ever occur here.
It is not a matter of if, but when an emergency will happen. We urge all residents and owners to mark your calendar and join us for this very important discussion.
In advance of the meeting, if you have any questions or comments, please write us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
