SECTION 2: MAINTENANCE
MAINTENANCE REQUESTS
All maintenance service calls are coordinated through our Administrative Assistant. We request that
either the primary office contact or another designated individual place all service calls. By limiting the
number of individuals calling our office within an office, we improve our efficiency and response time,
by not duplicating response calls.

When making a request, please provide the Administrative Assistant with the following information:

   Your name
   Company Name
   Suite Number
   Specify Request and location
   Indicate Urgency of the Request


ENGINEERING STAFF RESPONSIBILITIES
Our engineering staff will undertake general building repairs and coordinate maintenance related to the
following:

                   Cleaning
                   HVAC / Thermostats
                   Emergencies
                   Leaks
                   Lighting

                   Restrooms
                   Trash Removal

We strive to have all work orders completed within 24 hours of their origination, but we will respond to
any emergency immediately. Emergency situations include (but are not limited to) leaks, fires, electrical
problems, and hardware problems relating to your suite security.

The engineering staff will also make every effort to accommodate almost any Tenant Service Request. If
your needs exceed our staff’s expertise, we will arrange for a select vendor to perform the work after we
have your written approval of costs. The tenant will be invoiced after job completion.




                                                                                                    page 7
OFF-HOUR EMERGENCY ASSISTANCE
During holidays, evenings and weekends, emergency service is available by calling (301) 897-5977.
During these hours, they are authorized to forward your request to the appropriate person. Although our
office is not open 24 hours a day, we do have management personnel on duty 24 hours a day, seven days
a week to assist in emergency calls. The Property Manager is on call at all times, if it is necessary to
speak with one.

CLEANING SERVICES
The building provides janitorial services. The day porter is here from 6:00am-5:30pm and the night
cleaners are here from 5:30-11pm Monday-Friday. Our janitorial staff is required to keep exterior
appearances and common areas (including building standard restrooms) in accordance with first-class
office building standards. Carpets will be vacuumed, unobstructed surfaces dusted, and trash emptied in
all tenant offices.

The Property Management office can arrange special cleaning services for your office, at an additional
cost, such as carpet shampooing, kitchen detailing, and/or marble maintenance. Please contact the
management office for assistance
IMPORTANT - Please do not leave items that are not trash on top of or near wastebaskets.

CLIENT-OWNED MECHANICAL EQUIPMENT
All mechanical equipment requires preventive maintenance and will occasionally require miscellaneous
repairs. Our engineers maintain our base building mechanical equipment only. Clients who have
additional or special mechanical equipment must contract with a service provider for routine
maintenance. Our engineering staff is not responsible for the maintenance of any above standard
equipment, located within tenant suites or rooftop units. If you require additional services, please contact
the property management office for a list of outside contractors.

HVAC
Building temperatures are set in accordance with the prescribed building operating equipment needs and
federal guidelines. If the temperature in your office is uncomfortable, please do not personally adjust
thermostats. Unlike your home, building thermostats are calibrated differently and need to be adjusted by
one of our engineering staff. Please contact the Property Management office at (202) 375-5105 to
request an adjustment to your space temperature.

When severe weather conditions dictate, our engineering department will monitor outside temperatures
closely and start the building's HVAC system on a weekend or early in the morning, to ensure that the
ambient temperature in the building is at a comfortable level during the hours described in your lease.

Tenants shall not use any method of heating (such as space heaters), fans or air conditioning other than
that supplied by Landlord. Tenant must keep corridor doors and windows closed to permit the HVAC
system to perform efficiently.

Requests for after hour, weekend, and holiday services
If you anticipate working during non-building hours and will require HVAC, please notify the Property
Management office no less than twenty-four (24) hours in advance. Please fax your request to our office
and include the building name, your company name, floors requested, date required and time of service.

*Additional charges apply for HVAC services not falling within building operational hours.



                                                                                                     page 8
EMERGENCIES
We will prioritize tenant calls and inform you of any delay, if our engineering staff is responding to a
building emergency. Building emergencies are categorized as: mechanical power outages, floods, and
fire.


LIGHTING
Our engineering staff will replace all base building lights at no charge to the tenant.

Specialty lights (above building standard) can be ordered by the management office at tenant’s expense.
Once delivered, theses lights can be stored at no charge and replaced when needed by our engineering
staff.

Access Cards
Security access cards are issued to you prior to your move-in. All security access cards have an
identification number, it is the tenant’s responsibility to keep track of which cardkeys you have and to
whom they have been assigned. It is very important that you are in a position to authorize cards for new
employees, or to revoke any cards that are lost. Additional security access cards will be at an additional
cost to the tenant.


MSDS - Material Safety Data Sheets
A Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS) is a document which provides the chemical makeup and
characteristics of various products used in the building. These documents may be obtained from the
vendors whom the products were purchased. We need to have records of these materials regardless of
their level of toxicity or combustibility. Please provide MSDS for any solutions, solvents, or other
materials used in your daily business. (These lists will also be kept for fire fighters who may need to
know if any combustible or toxic materials are in your space.)




                                                                                                    page 9
PEST CONTROL
Building wide pest control services are provided once a month for routine maintenance. If additional
services are needed outside your scheduled time, please contact the management office directly.


RESTROOMS
The restrooms are cleaned and stocked multiple times daily. Our engineering staff will perform monthly
maintenance inspections to ensure proper working condition of the fixtures.

Toilets, urinals, washbowls and other restroom equipment shall not be used for any purposes other than,
for which they were constructed. No foreign substance shall be thrown therein. The expense of any
breakage, stoppage or damage resulting from the violation of this rule shall be borne by the Tenant who,
or whose employees or invitees, have caused damage. Our engineering staff is responsible for the routine
maintenance of our building restrooms only. Private restrooms (above base building) are not maintained
by our staff, services can be supplied for an additional cost.



TRASH REMOVAL
Trash is removed nightly from tenant spaces by our janitorial staff. Trash removal during business hours,
for special events, can be arranged by contacting the management office.

The Tenant shall store all of its trash and garbage within its Premises. Trash is NOT to be left in
hallways, common areas or elevators. All trash/debris left in hallways, common areas or elevators for
disposal without prior notification to Management, which is disposed of by our staff, will be charged
back to the tenant at a cost of $50.00 per hour (or any portion there of).

Boxes that need to be discarded during business hours must be broken down and tied up by your staff
prior to being removed by our day porter. If you are unable to break down these boxes, our day porter
will break the boxes for you and there will be a charge of $50.00 per hour (or any portion there of).

Large items for disposal (e.g. chairs, computers, lamps, etc.) cannot be thrown into our trash compactor;
they require a special pick-up service. You can arrange these pick-ups by contacting our office
(additional costs apply for special pick-ups).

IMPORTANT - As many of the cleaning crew speaks Spanish as their primary language, please mark all
trash, not in a trashcan, with the Spanish word “Basura” written on it.




                                                                                                 page 10

SIGNAGE
No signage, placard, picture, advertisement, name or notice shall be installed or displayed on any part of
the outside of the Building, common area or visible public area, without the prior written consent of the
Landlord. Landlord shall have the right to remove, at Tenant's expense and without notice, any sign
installed or displayed in violation of this rule. All approved signs or lettering in public corridors shall be
inscribed or affixed at the expense of Tenant by a person or vendor chosen by Landlord and in
conformance with the Building's standard signage program. In addition, Landlord reserves the right at
Landlord's expense to change from time to time the signs or lettering and to require previously approved
signs or lettering to be appropriately altered.

Upon request, the Landlord can order building standard door signs. Any new signs ordered after your
initial sign is installed (due to name changes, etc.), will be billed to the tenant. When ordering a door
sign, please submit your request in writing to the Property Management office with the company name
and suite number exactly as you wish them to appear on the sign.



                                                                                                      page 14
SMOKING
In accordance with the District of Columbia’s regulations, smoking is prohibited throughout the entire
building, including the parking garage, lobbies, stairwells, vestibules and restrooms. Smoking directly
in front of the main lobby entrances is prohibited. Smoking will be permitted in designated areas as
long as ash urns are used. The current designated smoking area is outside the building rear the 12 th street
building entrance. We appreciate your compliance with our guidelines and would like to create smoke-
free areas of egress for both your non-smoking employees and visitors.


SOLICITING
Soliciting is not permitted in the building. If someone is soliciting in your suite, please notify the
Property Management. Note: Tenants are also prohibited from soliciting to other tenants suites.



TELEPHONE CLOSETS
Tenants and tenant representatives can gain access to the telephone closets by contacting the
Management office.

VISITORS/GUESTS
Visitors arriving during normal business hours are required to sign in at the lobby desk. Weekend and
after hours visitation must be arranged on or before Friday, by contacting our office prior to 4:00 p.m.
Please provide the Property Management office with the name of the visitor, who they will be visiting,
the day they are expected, and the approximate time of their arrival.

The security guard will attempt to assist unexpected visitors by calling your suite to obtain your
permission for admittance, but we suggest you make prior arrangements for your visitors so they will not
be detained.




                                                                                                    page 15
SECTION 4: SECURITY

Access Control System
The Landlord reserves the right to exclude from the Building during non-business hours, any person
unless that person has a Building system key. Tenant shall be responsible for all persons for whom it
requests cards and/or keys and shall be liable to Landlord for all acts of such persons. Landlord shall not
be liable for damages for any error with regard to the admission to or exclusion from the Building of any
person.

The Evening Star Building is equipped with an access control system monitored by Kastle Systems. The
perimeter doors of the building, main lobby doors are locked at 6:00 p.m. Monday through Friday. The
lobby doors will be unlocked at approximately 7:00 a.m. (depending on the building's needs) Monday
through Friday. The lobby doors will be locked twenty-four (24) hours a day on weekends and holidays.
Your employees may gain access to the building and to your floor with their specially- coded Security
Access card.

You gain access by holding your Security Access card in front of the proximity readers located at all
entrances. After the reader has scanned your card, a red light on the reader will illuminate and you will
hear the bolt release. Enter the building through the door closest to the reader. The door will then
automatically close and lock behind you. Please ensure you do not hold the door open to let any other
person in the building. Each Person must scan their card and enter the building separately so that Kastle
Systems is able to monitor access to the building.

Tenants who request that security or building staff let them into secured spaces are often unaware that
this puts our staff members in a difficult position. We do not know every employee of your company and
do not want to accidentally admit a former employee or unauthorized person into the building.

For security, safety and liability reasons, the staff at Spaulding & Slye (including, management,
engineers and day porters) have been instructed not to unlock tenant suite doors. If one of your
employees is locked out of his/her suite, we suggest that they contact a fellow employee for access. You
may want to designate a person or persons in your office to handle such situations.


Building Security
A security officer is stationed at the building seven days a week, 24-hours a day. The guards have been
instructed to remain at the main lobby desk during their shift. Patrols of the property will be made during
the start of a shift while the departing officer covers the Lobby desk.

Building security has been instructed not to permit access after business hours to visitors, unless we have
received prior written notification from the tenant. This includes food deliveries and other courier
services, which pose a possible security concern. If you are expecting deliveries, please make the
appropriate arrangements for building access. Our guards will be happy to accommodate with sufficient
notice.

Our security guards do not have keys to tenant suites. Please inform employees, that not only have the
guards been instructed not to permit persons into the building who have not been authorized, but do not
have the ability to give access to offices.

Each office manager has been asked to provide the management office an employee list, alphabetized by
last name, with assigned Kastle card numbers. This list will be used to verify building employees after-

                                                                                                   page 16
hours, weekends and on holidays. It is the responsibility of each office to update this list as often as
it is needed and to supply a copy to the management office.


Crime Prevention Overview
Building Management wishes to take this opportunity to express its concerns for Tenants and their
employees regarding the various criminal activities each of us are exposed to on a daily basis. To reduce
crime, emphasis must be placed on preventive rather than reactive measures. Preventive measures
against office thefts, and crimes against persons can best be achieved through the individual efforts of
Tenants and their employees. To minimize incidents, it is important that you establish and periodically
review your office policies, procedures, rules and regulations as a means of preventing losses and
identifying wrongdoing. All employees must understand the importance of their part in helping to ensure
a more safe and secure working environment. With these thoughts in mind, we offer the following
guidelines.

Garage Escort
The security guards are available to escort tenants to their cars or respond to emergency calls during their
shift. The guard can be reached at the lobby desk by calling (202) 628-1407. Please give the guard your
name, number and location when he returns your call.

Thefts
In the event that something is discovered to be missing from your office, please notify the police by
calling their local non-emergency number – 311 - and then call the Property Management office at (202)
375-5105. In addition, please send a letter to the Property Management office stating the details so that
we will have a record in our files.

Office Security
The security of your suite during business hours is your responsibility. We stress that it is very important
for you to be aware, if you are not already, of the very real problem of daytime thieves. We always make
every effort to keep you advised of outside contractors that may be in the building. But question all
people you do not know, and do not hesitate to contact our office or the police if you question someone's
identity or purpose in the building.

Be mindful of the differences, if any, between the hours of your reception area coverage and the securing
and unsecuring of the front doors. If your reception area is not going to be occupied during times when
the front door security is off, we strongly urge you to keep your doors locked. Secondary doors to your
space should be kept locked at all times.

Good office security depends upon the active involvement of you and your staff, as well as building
personnel. The building has many visitors during the day when offices are usually unlocked. There are
several measures you can take to prevent thefts in your office:

1.      Keep your suite entry door locked at all times when your reception area is unattended.
        Where applicable, always carry your security card. Do not allow visitors to pass beyond
        the reception area, unless the receptionist knows them and is aware of the nature of their
        business. If you plan to have visitors in your office during non-business hours, please
        make arrangements to get them access. Keep all doors locked after you leave your office
        or when you are working late.

2.      Instruct employees to keep valuables, including purses and wallets, in locked desks when
        unattended. Do not leave these items in a jacket hung over a chair.

                                                                                                     page 17
3.     Employees should keep calculators and expensive items off of desktops when they are
       not at their desks.

4.     Articles of value, including handbags and coats, should not be left in unguarded
       reception areas or on desks, even for a few minutes.

5.     Thoroughly mix the combination when closing a vault or safe. Do not leave the vault or
       safe combination on or in a desk.

6.     All keys and access cards should be collected before an employee leaves the firm. Have
       locks changed if keys are missing or unaccounted for.

7.     Notify the management office when loiterers are observed in corridors or washrooms.
       Report peddlers and canvassers to the management office.

8.     Special care should be taken during times best suited for pilferage -- thirty minutes after
       opening, during lunch hours and before closing. During these times, there is maximum
       movement of personnel and absence from work areas and office.

9.     Check wastebaskets at the end of the day to see if any equipment or other valuables may
       have been hidden there for late removal.

10.    Serial numbers on articles should be recorded to aid police in recovering property in the
       event of loss or theft.

11.    Challenge delivery people, messengers, office equipment maintenance personnel and
       anyone else asking admittance to your space. DO NOT BE FOOLED BY UNIFORMS
       - THEY OFTEN SERVE AS DISGUISES. Always ask for identification.

12.    Beware of the repair/delivery person who enters your office to make an inspection or "to pick up
       a machine for repair". Ask questions, obtain company identification, and check with that
       company for verification.

13.    Do not enter an elevator if suspicious looking persons occupy it. Simply walk away.

14.    Please instruct your employees that when they are entering the building by the phone or
       access card they are NOT to let ANYONE else in, even if it is someone they recognize.
       Personnel changes occur frequently, and the trustworthy courier from yesterday, for
       example, may be neither a courier nor trustworthy today.

NOTE: Spaulding & Slye is not liable for any thefts/damages that occur in Tenant’s space.




                                                                                                     page 18
SECTION 5: EMERGENCY PROCEDURES
Report all emergencies to the appropriate local authorities first, by calling 911 for fire, police and/or
ambulance, then to the Property Management Office by calling (202) 375-5105. When calling this
number, please provide the following information: suite number, floor, tenant name, person calling,
phone number and the nature of the emergency. After business hours, call (301) 897-5977. The local
non-emergency number for fire, police and/or ambulance is 311.


        I.      GENERAL INFORMATION
                Below are some prudent procedures that should be followed in almost every type of
                emergency:

                A.      Remain calm. Panic can cause more damage and injury in many cases than the
                        emergency itself.

                B.      Contact the appropriate party immediately and relate all pertinent information,
                        such as the exact location of the emergency, name and nature of emergency, etc.

                C.      Do not add to the situation by exaggeration or by relating irrelevant or
                        unsubstantial statements.

                D.      Do not become a spectator. Head away from, not toward, the problem area.
                        Avoid getting in the way of emergency personnel.

                E.      Follow the directions of those in charge.

                F.     If an evacuation takes place, remember to use the appropriate areas designated
                       for this purpose, remain calm and be courteous to others.


        II.     TENANT EMERGENCY PROCEDURES
                Since each office varies in size and internal procedures. We recommend that each office
                administrator review and update their offices Emergency Response Procedures. In light
                of the new issues we are faced with, we suggest your office includes the following
                information for your office representatives and/or emergency coordinators:

                A.      Employee list of names, addresses, telephone numbers, personal email address,
                        and emergency contact information.
                B.      Evacuation location outside the immediate area. In case the immediate area is
                        evacuated due to a bomb threat or a miscellaneous city-block evacuation, offices
                        larger than 30 people should select two or more locations, which would be a safe
                        distance from our location in case employees take different evacuation routes by
                        foot.
                C.      Communication equipment, other than cellular phones (i.e. two way radios).
                D.      Maps of the city and alternate driving routes in case bridges or tunnels are
                        blocked or closed to traffic. Consider including metro stops and bus routes in
                        case vehicles are unable to be removed from the garage.




                                                                                                   page 19
       E.      In case of a serious threat in the immediate vicinity, building tenants should be
               prepared for immediate evacuation, which means access to the parking facility
               and vehicles will be prohibited until the emergency has cleared.


III.   EMERGENCY COORDINATOR
       We strongly recommend that each tenant establish appropriate representatives who
       should be given the responsibility of coordinating emergency procedures in cooperation
       with the management office. All employees should understand what your emergency
       coordinator's role is during emergency situations. The management office should have
       the name and telephone numbers (both during and after-hours) of the emergency
       coordinator.

       The emergency coordinator should be familiar with the location of all emergency exits,
       equipment and telephone numbers of all emergency services. The emergency
       coordinator for the Building is the Assistant Property Manager. The backup emergency
       coordinator is the Chief Engineer. The emergency control center is the Property
       Management Office, which initiates all evacuation, facility shutdown procedures, and
       layouts needed to effect emergency action plans.


IV.    IN CASE OF A POWER FAILURE
       Below are procedures we suggest for action to take during emergency situations, and
       which will help ensure the safety of everyone in the building. Each tenant should
       thoroughly understand the guidelines set forth in this section. While the final decision
       on what action to take rests with the individual, we urge that at all times you follow the
       directions of emergency personnel.

       A.      Open draperies and raise blinds to let in outside light.

       B.      Have portable flashlights located throughout your suite in order to use in
               areas where emergency lighting or interior offices are not available.

       C.      If you are instructed to evacuate:
                        1. Manually lock all areas.
                        2. Do not congregate in lobby areas, proceed down stairwells.
                        3. Go to a pre-determined area and remain with your group.
                        4. Building Management will inform all office contacts of the situation
                        as information becomes available.
                        5. Return to the building when instructed by the proper authority.

       D.      If you are in an elevator during a power failure, DO NOT PANIC. Your
               elevator will temporarily cease operation, but WILL NOT FALL. Do NOT
               force open the doors. You may reach the security monitoring company by using
               the phone inside each elevator cab. Once the emergency generator starts
               (between 10 to 60 seconds) the elevator will go directly to the lobby level and
               open.




                                                                                            page 20
    V.    MEDICAL EMERGENCIES

          A.      Notify rescue squad - Dial 911.

          B.      Notify the Property Management Office. Dial (202) 375-5105.

          C.      Dispatch someone to meet the ambulance at the building entrance. If needed,
                  Building Management will have someone hold an elevator.

          D.      Keep the victim WARM. Use blankets if available. Clothing such as coats or
                  jackets can also be used.

          E.      Apply pressure to any severe bleeding until emergency personnel arrive to take
                  over treatment.

          F.      If there is a possible back or neck injury, DO NOT MOVE THE PERSON
                  UNLESS ABSOLUTELY NECESSARY.

          G.      Listen for breathing. If there is no breathing, try to see if there is anything stuck
                  in the mouth or throat that may prevent the passage of air.

          H.      Check for a pulse. If you don't find one, ask if anyone is certified for CPR and
                  begin administering CPR AS SOON AS POSSIBLE.

          I.      Notice the alertness of patient, and remain calm. Comfort the victim with a
                  calming tone of voice. Assure the victim that he or she will be all right and that
                  others are in control of the situation.

          J.      If the injury is severe, contact a relative or friend of the victim. This information
                  should be in the personnel file of the employee.

          K.      Determine, if possible:
                  1. Victim's name, address and age
                  2. Nature of illness or injury
                  3. Allergies and any medications currently being taken
                  4. Local doctor and date last treated

    VI.   ELEVATOR MALFUNCTION
          A. Press the hands free phone button. This will automatically call the security
          monitoring company. These telephones are monitored 24 hours a day.

          B. Give the person who answers the phone the elevator cab number, which is listed on
          the inside of the telephone cabinet door, the address of the building and the floor you are
          on if you know.
.
          C. DO NOT PANIC. There will only be a short delay until the elevator controls are
          corrected. The elevator is secure - IT WILL NOT FALL.

          D. DO NOT try to force open an elevator door. Climbing out of an unsecured
          elevator can cause serious bodily harm or death.


                                                                                                page 21
       E. During Building Hours
          1. Someone will be in touch with you by phone, intercom or from outside the
              elevator
          2. The elevator company is contacted
          3. Response time of the elevator company is usually 10-15 minutes.

       F. During Non-Building Hours
          1. The operator who is contacted via the hands free phone will contact both the
              building security and the elevator company.
          2. Security will locate the elevator and verify persons in the cab.
          3. Security will then wait in the main lobby area for the technicians arrival
          4. There is no guarantee on the time of the arrival of the technician after hours.
              The hours between 5:30 p.m. – 6:30 a.m., there are no service technicians
              readily available. In most instances, these technicians will be responding
              from home. Be patient, after-hour malfunctions might take 45 minutes
              until the mechanic arrives.


VII.   BOMB THREATS
       If your office receives a bomb threat, you can follow certain procedures that will help the
       police determine the appropriate course of action. Below is a checklist, which should be
       completed if a bomb threat occurs. The checklist will prompt you with questions to ask
       during the actual conversation. Remember, every detail is important, and the more
       information you can obtain from a caller, the greater the assistance the police can
       provide.

       It is recommended that Bomb Threat Information Forms be kept at your reception desks
       or with persons who answer your telephone on a regular basis.

       After receiving a threatening phone call, notify the Police Department by dialing 911 and
       give the operator the street address, floor and suite number. Next, notify the Property
       Management office at (202) 375-5105. Property Management staff will take the
       necessary course of action deemed appropriate by the District Police Department.

       Each office should have a designated location outside of the building for employees to
       congregate during an evacuation. For firms that are larger than 35 people, multiple
       locations should be selected, which are assessable by the different points of egress.

       Due to sophisticated technology, inform all employees to avoid the following if a
       bomb threat is received:

               1. DO NOT pull the fire alarm
               2. DO NOT use any two-way radios or Nextel phones
               3. DO NOT tamper with thermostats




                                                                                          page 22
                CHECKLIST FOR BOMB THREAT BY TELEPHONE

1.      Be calm and courteous. Listen. Do not interrupt.

2.      Signal another employee to get on the same line (another phone) quietly and take notes.

3.      Circle items (below) that apply as you listen:

        Identify:       Male             Female

                        Adult            Juvenile

        Voice Tone:     Loud             Soft            Normal


4.      Ask:

Location of bomb? (exact) __________________________________________________________

Inside/Outside of Building? _________________________________________________________

Which Floor? _____________________________________________________________________

Time set to explode? _______________________________________________________________

What kind of bomb? _______________________________________________________________

                         discretion).


IX.   RIOT AND PUBLIC DISTURBANCE
            The best procedure in case of riot or public disturbance is:

                  1. Do not become a spectator. Leave or avoid the area of disturbance to prevent
                     injury or possible arrest.

                     do not provoke an incident. Call the proper public authority to have the
                     individual(s) removed. If possible, place the call from a private area so as not to
                     further upset or anger the participant.

                                                                                                 page 24
          6. Cooperate fully with the Property Management office if it must limit certain
             services or restrict access to the building during a disturbance. The tenants'
             cooperation is needed under these circumstances.

          7. Avoid unnecessary inquiries that will tie-up communication systems.

          8. Use good judgment and keep calm.

X.    TERRORISM THREAT
      In the event that the building is evacuated due to a terrorist threat, all tenants and their
      employees need to be familiar with proper building evacuation procedures.

      In the event of an internal terrorist event, building management will contact local
      emergency services for proper response. Should the incident warrant the shut down of
      building systems, all tenants will be properly notified.

      In the event of an external terrorist event that impacts the building, building management
      will act in accordance to directives from local authorities. Tenants will be updated as
      information becomes available. The following procedures may be implemented:

         Building access will be limited to authorized personnel only
         Deliveries will be restricted as needed
         Building equipment system may be temporarily suspended
          depending on the impact to the occupants (e.g. HVAC systems,
          water supply, etc.)

                         on-site security.

               D. SEVERE STORMS (WIND/SNOW/ICE)
                      1. Be prepared in the event of a power loss. Follow the power loss
                         section of the handbook for details.
                      2. Be especially careful outside in the parking areas. There may be icy
                         conditions.

In each emergency, Spaulding & Slye property management will contact all
employees via the public address system to provide additional specific
information.

XII. HAZARDOUS MATERIALS

All contracted services and tenants are required to provide material safety
data sheets when conducting work with hazardous materials at 1101 Pennsylvania
Avenue. Property Management shall be informed of the potential hazards and
ensure contractors take all necessary precautions to prevent harm to
building employees.

In the event of a hazardous substance release:

          1. Contact the Spaulding & Slye property management office at (202)
             375-5105. Building staff shall shut down all air handling systems and area
             employees shall be evacuated.

          2. If the substance is not easily dispersed and localized, shutdown of
             air would not be necessary. Depending on the extent and toxicity of the
             hazardous release, property management may either evacuate the surrounding
             area via the public address system or evacuate the entire building using
             the same method.

          3. All on-site incidents will be reported to the hazardous material
             emergency response unit by calling 911.




                                                                                               page 26
SECTION 6: FIRE EVACUATION PLAN

FIRE EVACUATION PLAN


There are SIX important groups of instructions for your safety as follows:

   Life Safety System Features

   Emergency Coordinator Responsibilities

   What Happens When Emergency Alarm Is Sounded

   What To Do If You Observe A Fire In Progress

   Survival Guidelines

   Fire Prevention


Life Safety System Features - For your safety and well being, your building is equipped with the
following safety features:

        Pull Stations - You will find a red pull station conveniently located by each stairwell entrance.
        When the pull station is activated, you will hear an audible alarm. Should you hear this alarm,

        Fire Extinguishers - Each floor is equipped with a fire extinguishers located in the stairwell
        behind the water fountain. Tenants are responsible for equipping all kitchens, copier rooms and
        file rooms with fire extinguishers.

        Stairwells - Your evacuation route will lead you to a fire-rated stairwell. There are fire-rated
        stairwells with access from each floor for protection while you evacuate the building. The
        stairwell doors are locked from the stairwell side for your security. Tenants can exit the
        stairwells at the lobby and garage. Take a few minutes to learn the location of the stairwell
        nearest to your normal working location. You should familiarize yourself with the location of
        the other stairwells and also how to reach them from your normal working station.

        Sprinkler System - The sprinklers will automatically open and spray when the temperature rises
        above a safe limit. This will also initiate other emergency alarm devices.

        Smoke Detectors - A network of smoke detectors provides an early warning system for the entire
        building.




                                                                                                 page 27

Survival Guidelines - In a life-threatening situation, your survival may depend on your knowledge of
what to do. Follow these tips:

                   Review and Understand Emergency Procedures
                   Keep Calm.
                   Close Doors.
                   Walk to Exit.
                   Use stairs, not elevators.
                   Stay to the right in stairs going down.
                   Do not go back.

                Safety Tips
                1. If there is smoke…keep low to the floor where the air will be cleaner and cooler.
                2. Feel the door. If it is warm, do not open it.
                3. Close doors to contain the fire.

Fire Prevention - Please follow the following precautionary steps:

        1.      Flammable or combustible supplies should be stored in metal cans or safety containers as
                required by local, state and federal codes.

        2.      Extension cords in lieu of permanent wiring are not recommended. Only three-prong
                surge protection devices are acceptable.

        3.      Appliances and cords should be kept in good repair.

        4.      Additional appliances should not be used without the authorization of the management
                office. The building was designed to carry a normal electrical load. Overloading can
                result in an electrical fire.

        5.      Never use water on electrical, oil or grease fire.

        6.      Check that all appliances are cleaned, maintained and turned off nightly.


Fire Prevention Survey

        This survey is conducted by the Building Engineers on an annual basis for each tenant. All items
        are checked thoroughly for violations and checked off on the inspection sheet. Any violations
        will be described in detail at the bottom of the survey. The emergency coordinator will be asked
        to sign the report. This report will then be turned in to the Property Management Office and
        placed on file. If any violations are noted, the tenant will be sent notification to rectify the
        conditions under its control. Property Management will correct deficiencies within the scope
        required by the Lease. Should the condition show up on the next inspection, a report will be
        forwarded to the Fire Department for processing and enforcement.

        A Fire Prevention Survey Form follows on the next page. Please copy and use it for your own
        annual (or preferably more frequent) inspection of your office space. We recommend that you
        create a permanent file for these forms as a record of your ongoing efforts to maintain a safe,
        fireproof workplace.
