On Wednesday, Jun. 15 at 6:00 PM, top New York City property management company Argo Real Estate is hosting an educational session titled Emergency Response for NYC Residential Buildings: Preparing For Terrorist Attacks, Shooters, & Other Threats as part of its Argo University — also known as ArgoU — series.
“When Argo Real Estate approached us with this idea we were excited to get involved,” said Ira Tannenbaum, Assistant Commissioner of the New York City Emergency Management. “We feel that it is crucial for New York residents to be aware of what measures are already in place to protect against these threats, as well as what general citizens and in particular building board members, can do to prepare.”
Argo Real Estate has enlisted the help of top emergency management professionals to address potential threats including terrorist attacks, bio-terrorism, active shooters and others. Presenters include:
– Ira Tannenbaum, Assistant Commissioner, New York City Emergency Management
– Howard Rothschild, President, Realty Advisory Board on Labor Relations
– Mike Green, Deputy Director of the Local 32BJ Training Fund
– David Starr, Director of Countermeasures Response, NYC Department of Health
In addition, a senior official from the NYPD Counterterrorism Bureau is scheduled to participate in the session.
The event will be held at The New School for Social Research, as located at 55 West 13th Street in Greenwich Village. The event is free of charge and open to all New York City residents. Attendees may register for this event online at www.argo.com/for-boards.
