FirstService Residential, New York’s leading property management company, has produced an all-inclusive “Hurricane Preparedness Guide for Residents and Building Staff in New York City Multifamily Properties.” Created by the company’s in-house experts, the guide is an invaluable tool designed to help all multifamily properties weather any storm.
“The potential for a hurricane to impact New York City is greatest from August to October,” said Dan Wurtzel, president, FirstService Residential New York. “Our Hurricane Preparedness Guide provides residents, building staff and board members of condominiums and cooperatives with crucial information, resources and checklists to help ensure there is a solid plan in place to protect the property and its residents.”
FirstService Residential’s Hurricane Preparedness Guide offers insightful recommendations to protect the safety of all residents and the value of each property. The guide includes resources for residents such as emergency supply and go bag checklists, instructions for what to do if a storm approaches or if you are ordered to evacuate, and how to proceed once the hurricane is over. For building staff, it includes emergency supply checklists, pre- and post-storm checklists, and how to prepare for and restore the property after a flood. It also includes contact information and links to important New York City resources.
