In the event of a flood, we will evacuate and close the affected areas of the building. Flooding can cause great harm to electrical equipment that serves the building and disrupt the sanitary water supply. If there is a slow water leak (not considered a flood) in the restroom or a tenant space, please inform the Building Management Office at 503 619 3200 immediately. Because of the extreme danger generated by floods and subsequent electrical problems, in the event of an actual flood: Evacuate the area to a dry and safe place. Call 911 (preceded by any number or code, which may be required to reach an outside line) for the Fire Department. Explain the location of flood and probable cause, giving the building address. Call the Building Management Office at 503 619 3200. Follow these same procedures should the sprinkler system release within the building.
In the event of a flood that may cause damage to tenant property or affect the normal operation of the building, designated tenant representatives will be contacted by Building Management personnel, regardless of the time of day.
The first priority is to ensure that no personal injury occurs as the result of a flood. The second priority is to discover the cause and prevent or minimize additional flooding.
Once the flooding has been contained, clean-up operations will be commenced. Tenants will need to contact their insurance carrier for any damage to their property.
Follow these same procedures should the sprinkler system release within the building.
