Fall Safety Reminders

Time is Changing!

Clocks fall back an hour at 2 a.m. on Sunday, marking the start to Daylight Saving Time. Remember to set your clocks an hour behind before you go to bed.


Smoke Detectors

With the cold months quickly approaching, the risk of apartment fires increase as tenants use their stove or electric heaters to heat their units. Take a moment to check your smoke detectors and make sure your batteries still work!


Electrical Heaters

If you insist on using one of these devices, please ensure the following, a newer device that meets current safety requirements, has a temperature dial and timer. Never use the device on the highest temperature setting and do not use the device for prolonged periods of time. Please remove all personal belongings within 10 feet of the heater. NEVER LEAVE THE HEATER RUNNING WHILE YOU ARE NOT HOME OR IN THE SAME ROOM
