Annual Fire Alarm Inspection

On Tuesday, October 27th, 2020 beginning at 8:00 am, Custom Security Systems will be conducting our annual fire alarm test mandated by the Everett Fire Department.

They will inspect the central alarm and fire extinguishers. The main alarm is very loud and will be tested several times in each building that day. Please refrain from disconnecting your smoke detector in a futile attempt to kill the noise in your unit. It is not your smoke detector that is making the noise, although it would be a good time to make sure that your smoke detector is working properly:
  • First locate your smoke detector, attached to the ceiling, in your hallway.
  • Examine the smoke detector for a little round “test” button. All detectors have one. Press and hold the test button for a few seconds to see if it beeps. If it does, your detector is working properly. If not, remove the smoke detector and check your batteries. Batteries should be replaced twice a year. 
  • According to the manufacturer’s instructions, all smoke detectors should be replaced after 10 years of use. The date will be listed on the back of the detector. If there is no date on the smoke detector, it is over 10 years old and needs to be replaced.
  • If you hear your smoke detector “chirping” (it continuously beeps every few seconds up to a minute). This is an indication that the battery needs to be replaced.
Washington State law (RCW 19.27.530) requires carbon monoxide alarms to be installed in new residences. As of January 1, 2013, carbon monoxide alarms are required in existing apartments, condominiums, hotels, motels, and single-family residences, with some exceptions. Owner-occupied single-family residences, legally occupied before July 26, 2009, are not required to have carbon monoxide alarms until they are sold. To comply, simply install the CO alarms in the area right outside of each bedroom. They can be found in most hardware stores, etc.

Thank you,

The Board of Directors

Tree Trimming Notice

On Monday, July 20th, 2020, Brad's Stump & Tree Service will be trimming trees throughout the entire property. They will be working around each building and in the parking lot.

The trees on the west side of the parking lot, by the Shiloh fence, will be trimmed. If you park on that side of the parking lot, please be sure to move your vehicle to another parking lot location on Monday morning.

Our landscapers would normally trim trees in the parking lot but were not able to do so while the stay-at-home order was in effect; the lot was just too full on most days. The trees have now grown too close to the power line and must be professionally trimmed.

Thank you for your cooperation.

Building 3 Water Damage

Some of you may be wondering was is going on with Building 3. Last Thursday, we had some workers in the attic addressing an issue with the ridge vents being plugged. Unfortunately one of them stepped on a sprinkler line and water came gushing down from the third floor all the way down to the first.

There is water damage to 3 hallways, 4 units, and 3 garages. Servpro is currently drying things out, cutting into walls, etc. The insurance adjuster will be on site tomorrow to assess the damages.
