Civil disturbances are not easily categorized. Depending on the organization responsible for the disturbance, they may range from calm groups of picketers to violent destructive mobs. Frequently, calm groups escalate to violent mobs. Eliminating the threat of violence and destruction is the goal of this section.
Often, political interest groups, disgruntled employees and striking employees will let it be known that they intend to demonstrate, picket, etc., at a certain location. Should you receive such information, please communicate it to the Building Management Office immediately.
It is recommended that tenants develop their own Civil Disturbance Action Plan to inform and safeguard their employees.
In the event of a disturbance, the following procedures should be followed:
Call the Police and state:
- Your name and company name.
- Location of the disturbance.
- Size of the group.
- Type of demonstration.
- Call the Building Management Office at 213 614 2300 with the same information.
Should a riot or civil disturbance start outside the Building, the security team may lock all entrances to the building, admitting Aon Center at 707 Wilshire tenants with key cards only. The police will be notified. We will keep you informed. If a disturbance should occur in the main lobby, all elevators will be turned off at the first floor and the police will be summoned.
We invite you to learn how to implement your own emergency preparedness plans by using the resources from our PREP website.
