Winter Reminders

 Please DO NOT leave any windows open during the winter season.  This can cause pipes to freeze and break in your unit.  It is extremely important to maintain adequate heat in each unit to prevent pipes from freezing.
 Please be aware of the snow contractor this winter when they are plowing the driveway. Plan to move your vehicles in order to accommodate the plow.
 Please update Snow’s Management if you plan to be away from your unit for an extended period of time. Be prepared to provide an emergency contact that has access to your unit in case of an emergency.
 Winter in Alaska is the most beautiful of the seasons, especially for those who participate in the Anchorage Chamber of City of Lights program.  Help to light up your Association by adorning your unit with white miniature lights.  Splashes of miniature white lights and outdoor lighting transforms and brighten our city, creating a sense of community pride and enhancing safety.  Please remember these lights must come down when the last musher reaches Nome!

Fire Safety

It has been recommended by the Anchorage Fire Department, that each unit have a UL listed / FM approved fire extinguisher(s) with a minimum rating of 2A:10B:C. It must be easily visible & accessible for use in the event of a fire.  All fire extinguishers must be serviced & tagged annually by a qualified servicing contractor. Install at least one smoke detector in every floor including the basement and attic and inside each sleeping area. Ensure that all members of your family can hear the smoke alarm. If someone is hearing impaired, install alarms that flash a strobe light as well as sound an alarm. In addition, at least one carbon monoxide detector or alarm shall be installed on each floor level. If a floor level contains bedrooms or sleeping rooms, at least one detector shall be located in the immediate vicinity of the sleeping area, outside of the bedrooms or sleeping rooms. Carbon monoxide detectors and alarms shall be installed in accordance with their listing. The alarm shall be clearly audible in all sleeping rooms, even if the intervening doors are closed.  It is also recommended that your smoke / carbon monoxide detectors be checked every 30 days.  Please remember to check / change the batteries in both of these.

Smoke Alarm Maintenance Tips:

• Test smoke alarms once a month by pushing the test button.
• Install new batteries at least once a year.
• To have the Alaska State Fire Marshal’s Office remind you via email, sign up for the Automatic Smoke Alarm Reminder.
