We all share in the responsibility of ensuring that ours is a safe and secure environment here at Emerson Square. We allow no trespassing, no solicitation and no dumping here. The following are a few prudent rules for us to follow:
- Keep your vehicles locked at all times. An unlocked vehicle is an invitation to theft.
- There is no solicitation allowed at our condominium. Keep your doors locked and be wary of strangers.
- Report immediately any suspicious activity to the Stoneham Police Dept. (781-438-1212)
- Write down license plate numbers and descriptions of suspicious vehicles and persons on the property. (Remember; a picture is worth a thousand words and a camera photo can help police positively identify and apprehend suspects.)
- If you find evidence on the property of unlawful activity, do not disturb it. Call police immediately so that they can examine it. (Remember: if you touch evidence, you destroy it.)
- Inform your Trustees of the date, time, and nature of suspicious activity you encounter so that we may keep a running record. (email: firstname.lastname@example.org)
- Be sure that if you are buzzing a visitor into the building your buzzer does not get stuck as you will inadvertently create a security breach by keeping the access door unlocked.
HOT WATER HEATERS AND GENERAL PLUMBING:
To avoid a water tank rupture and the problems that a ruptured water heater poses for everyone in the building, we urge every resident to invest in an inexpensive, portable moisture alarm.(Watch Dog Water Alarm, $12.53 + 9V battery at Home Depot) It will alert you to a problem before it occurs and will allow you to take the preventative steps of calling a plumber before it is too late. See the following link: https://basementwatchdog.com/watchdog-water-alarm/. (Remember to change the battery regularly to deep the unit operational at all times).
In the event that you are having plumbing done in your unit and need to shut off the water, you may do so by first posting a notice to all the residents of the date and time when you will be shutting off the water in the building. It is best if you schedule your appointment late in the morning or early afternoon so that your work is not being done during a time of peak usage. The main water shut-off is in the locked closet on the 1st floor in the south stairwell. You will find the closet key hanging on the board in the utility room on the 1st floor behind the interior double-door. Upon completion of your work, please turn the water back on, lock the closet, and return the key on the hook where you found it.
