And that holds true for your commercial property, be it an office building with unsecured storage space, a for-profit parking lot, or apartments you rent out to tenants.The good new is the number of methamphetamine lab incidents, which include labs, dumpsites, and chemical and glassware seizures tends to be downtrending. According to the United States Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), incidents for 2014 totaled 9,338, down from the 2013 total of 12,050. While it’s hopeful to think this reduction in occurrences means your property is safe, you still need to know how to respond should a run in with a meth lab happen.
