The Tenant Emergency Response Team includes:

They should be reliable, respected by other employees, and capable of providing guidance in the event of an emergency situation. Tenant Wardens and their Deputies may be called upon to be lead their co-workers and therefore must display confidence and support cooperation. During an emergency, corporate hierarchy should be relegated in favor of allowing the Tenant Emergency Response Team to effectively take charge (within the bounds of the Emergency Plan). Each company must assign at least one Tenant Warden & Deputy Tenant Warden for every 20 employees. SPECIAL ASSISTANCE TENANT WARDENS (and Deputies) must be designated to assist persons with disabilities within your company in the event of an emergency evacuation.
