BOMA San Francisco's Emergency Preparedness Committee (EPC) held its 2nd Annual Emergency Preparedness Drill at 303 Second Street on August 18, 2010.  BOMA partnered with the San Francisco Police Department (SFPD) and the building management to simulate an 'active shooter' and hostage situation in the building in order to test the emergency preparedness plan at 303 Second Street, as well as help the SFPD test their response to the emergency.

Thank you to the building management team at 303 Second Street, the members of the BOMA San Francisco Emergency Preparedness Committee and the SFPD for their invaluable efforts and involvement.
