Condo Board Minutes:
TO ALL CONDOMINIUM OWNERS:
Dryer Vent Cleaning will be taking place the week of September 21st. Nancy will be delivering the schedule to residents shortly. If you cannot make the scheduled date given to you, please contact Nancy asap. If you switch time slots with your neighbor, please let Nancy know.
Make sure your aides, contractors, family and/or guests wear masks throughout the buildings at all times. No one should be sharing the elevator unless you are living in the same residence. Keep your social distancing practices in place at all times.
You all remembered to change your clocks, but did you remember to change the batteries in your fire & carbon monoxide detectors? Good practice is to change the batteries when you change your clocks even though the life of a battery may last up to one year’s time. Another important note to remember is the fact that the life expectancy of a carbon monoxide detector is 5 years however sensors tend to go bad towards the end of their life expectancy.
RECALL ISSUED ON FIREX SAFETY PRODUCTS (1ST ALERT).
Your unit may or may not have one of these. If so, please contact the Recall Center at 888-879-3906. If you have a 1st Alert product and it happens to go bad prior to the 5-year warranty that 1st Alert offers, you may contact 1st Alert at 1-800-323-9005. Should you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact Nancy in the Management Office at (908) 359-1102.
IMPORTANT - CLOSE FRONT AND REAR DOORS IN CONDOMINIUMS
Please do not leave front/rear entrance doors opened for any reason. For security reasons, they MUST be closed behind you at all times. Please advise any contractors you may have in your unit of this as well.
POWER FAILURE INSTRUCTIONS
Should there be a power failure due to inclement weather please take the following precautions to insure safety:
1. If you see there is a threatening lightening/ thunder storm, please DO NOT use the elevators.
2. Should you be stuck in an elevator, use the phone located inside the elevators to call for assistance.
3. According to the Fire Marshall of Hillsborough Township, the emergency lights will remain on for only ONE (1) hour after a power outage. The purpose being to serve as a warning to either remain where you are or to allow for a safe evacuation of the building in the possibility of a fire. They do not remain for longer than that.
4. Keep flashlights on hand. If using candles, always use precaution.
5. Use the good neighbor policy. If you know of a neighbor that may need assistance, do not hesitate to check on them.
