BIDs make emergencies their business

The Flatiron/23rd Street Partnership and Union Square Partnership, two local business improvement districts, are inviting area property owners, business owners and managers to a free breakfast event on Thurs., Nov. 1, from 8:30 a.m. to 10 a.m. at Baruch College’s Vertical Campus, 55 Lexington Ave. at 24th St. (enter on 24th St.), 14th-floor conference center, room 14-220.

Called Ready New York for Business, the BIDs’ morning get-together offers a chance to learn more about preparing for all types of emergencies, including fire, power outage, natural disasters and terrorism.

Representatives from the city’s Office of Emergency Management and Department of Small Business Services will present basic steps that all businesses should take to prepare for and recover from an emergency.

Enrollment information for the city’s Corporate Emergency Access System, a pre-emergency credentialing program to authorize essential employees’ access to restricted areas following a disaster, will also be provided.

RSVP by Fri., Oct. 26, via e-mail at events@flatironbid.org or call 212-741-2323.
