Always be Prepared for Emergency Situations

Gather Some Gear

Always try to be prepared. Get ready today for an emergency by filling a waterproof tub with these must-have items:

  • Copies of insurance policies, bank account numbers, passports and other important records
  • A three-day supply of nonperishable food and bottled water (one gallon per person per day); can opener; disposable plates, cups, and utensils; extra food and water for pets
  • A first-aid kit and personal hygiene items (keep prescription medications handy)
  • A battery-powered radio and a flashlight, with extra batteries for both, and a whistle in case you need to signal for help
  • Pliers to turn off utilities
  • Other items to consider include solar cell phone chargers, a change of clothes and shoes, sleeping bags, matches, a fire extinguisher and games to keep kids entertained
  • Don’t forget to keep boots and a winter coat in your car

In Case of a Kitchen Emergency

The average kitchen is full of fire hazards and flammable risks. You may be able to stop a small fire from becoming a house-engulfing blaze by placing portable fire extinguishers in the kitchen (where most fires start) Inspect extinguishers each month to make sure the pressure gauge is in the green zone, the pin and tamper seal are intact and there are no dents, leaks or rusty spots. A fire extinguisher is only as effective as the person using it. Remind your family today about the PASS technique:

  • Pull the pin to release the locking mechanism.
  • Aim low, pointing the extinguisher at the base of the fire.
  • Squeeze the lever slowly and evenly.
  • Sweep the nozzle side to side.
  • Extinguishers should only be used on small, confined fires. If a fire is growing, get out of the house and call 911.

INSURANCE CHECK-UP

Condominium unit owners insurance insures your personal property
and any parts of your unit that aren’t covered by your condo
association’s insurance policy.

By getting a condominium unit owners insurance policy, you’ll have
more peace of mind knowing that there is help to protect you if a loss
occurs.

Don’t forget Loss Assessment coverage – Uniquely designed for
owners in condominiums/associations, Loss Assessment coverage
recognizes the potential for owners to be assessed for certain kinds of
loss.

Here is an example that might require the condominium association to
assess all unit owners:

Major damage occurs to commonly owned buildings and it is
not fully covered by insurance.

For covered losses, loss assessment coverage would pay your share,
up to the limit of coverage you select. You should review the need for
this coverage with your agent and buy an appropriate amount of
coverage.

Disability Insurance Helps Protect Your Future
You rely on your paycheck. Disability insurance can help protect it. If
you’re totally disabled due to sickness or injury and can’t work,
disability insurance offers coverage that can provide money to help
pay your mortgage, rent, car loans, and other monthly expenses. It
may also help prevent using your retirement or education savings if
you can’t work. Let’s talk.

Did You Know?

  • Just over 1 in 4 of today’s 20-year-olds will become disabled before
    they retire.
  • Insurance statistics show that only 9 percent of long-term
    disabilities actually resulted from serious accidents.

storm parking guidelines so we can keep the roadways clear.

Please do not park directly next to sidewalks. Please leave 12”-15” to allow for
snow removal equipment.

Note: Storms are not an excuse to park in the “No Parking” areas or yellow marked streets, curbs or fire lanes.

We have salt buckets all around the property for anybody to use on icy areas,
please use sparingly a little goes a long way.

MAINTENANCE ISSUES – Canyon Club counts on our residents to help keep us informed of issues in our community. You are our eyes and ears. If you have
concerns, questions or suggestions for maintenance please communicate them through the HOA office by calling the office manager, 303-757-8527, email to canyonclubcondos@gmail.com.  Maintenance emergencies must be called into the maintenance emergency line at 720-385-8158.

REMINDERS

PLEASE OBEY THE POSTED SPEED LIMIT – The Board of Directors and Staff want to keep our community safe.  10MPH and ALL STOP SIGNS!

TRASH – We continue to monitor and address ongoing rodent problems. You can help correct this problem. It is critical that trash is not left outside of units (front or back) and is placed INSIDE the dumpster in a TIED BAG. Leaving trash
on a patio, at a front door, or on the ground near the dumpster is not permitted. Please ensure pet waste is cleaned up quickly and pet food is not left out.

BEWARE: PET WASTE – We have had a major issue again with animal waste. Please pick up after your pets, we work hard to keep the waste bins cleared out and bags stocked, there is no excuse to not pick up after your pets. If you see somebody not picking up after their pet please let the office know ASAP, a picture would also help with catching the people that do not care about this property. Please remember, pets are not permitted to roam alone and must be on a leash when walking. It is your responsibility to pick-up your pet’s waste. YOU WILL BE FINED IF YOU ARE NOT IN COMPLIANCE!
