Smoke detectors are installed within each residential unit. Smoke detectors are designed to provide an early warning of a fire. Residents are responsible for maintaining the smoke detectors in their units, including changing the (9 volts) batteries and testing them by pressing the test button. It is recommended that you change the batteries and test the units when you change your clocks for daylight savings time (twice each year). See building maintenance if you need instruction. As batteries die, smoke detectors will chirp. IMPORTANT TIP: Once the battery is changed, there will be a steady green light and a flashing red light. If you do not have this, there is a possibility that your smoke detector is not hooked up to power in the ceiling. See building maintenance about it.nIt is important to note that the unit smoke detectors are not connected to the building fire alarm. Nonemergency services will be notified of a smoke alarm within your unit. If you have a fire within your unit, you need to call 9-1-1 to report it immediately. There are smoke detectors in some common areas of the building connected to the building fire alarm system, and if activated, the Fire Department will respond to this alarm.

The shower doesn’t have one. You can shut the water off to your entire unit. THIS DOES NOT SHUT OFF FIRE SPRINKLER SYSTEM.nWater shut off to your unit is behind a 3 foot tall by a 2-foot wide metal door. This door may be in one of your closets or utility room. There will be one screw at the top and two on the left. When you open this panel, you will see many blue (cold) and red (hot) PVC/plastic pipes. The red pipes branch from a trunk pipe with a visible shut-off handle. The blue pipes branch from a separate cold water pipe with a shut-off handle. Note that when the valve is open, the handle is parallel to the water flow. To close, turn the handle perpendicular to the pipe. We recommend that you do not block this access panel. If you must put something in front of the panel, make sure the object can be easily & quickly moved to give you access. A flat or blade screwdriver, butter knife, or any coin should be left or taped to the door for quick access. Whatever you choose, try it to make sure it does the job.) Show everyone in your unit; so that whoever is home can access it in an emergency.nBe Prepared to avoid wasting time in panic and confusion while water is accumulating and causing damage.
