Emergency Procedures caution

Fire

If you have a fire in your apartment, please call 911 immediately.

  • Leave your apartment, shutting your door behind you and if possible knocking on your neighbors’ doors on the way out notifying them to leave the building.
  • There are fire extinguishers in each apartment. If you have a small kitchen fire and you use your extinguisher to put out the fire, please make sure that you notify a staff member so that your fire extinguisher can be recharged.

Please note: It is imperative for the safety of everyone in your community that you make staff aware of any situation involving fire.


Tornado tornado

It is important for you to learn the difference between a Tornado Watch and a Tornado Warning.

TORNADO WATCH – A Tornado Watch means conditions are conducive to the development of tornadoes in and close to the watch area. When a Tornado Watch is issued:

  • Listen to local radio and TV stations for further updates.
  • Be alert to changing weather conditions.  Blowing debris or the sound of an approaching tornado may alert you.  Many people say it sounds like a freight train.

TORNADO WARNING – A Tornado Warning means a tornado has actually been sighted by spotters or indicated on the radar and is occurring or imminent in the warning area. When a Tornado Warning is issued:

  • If you are inside, go to the lowest floor in the building.
  • If you are not able to go to the lowest point in the building, please head to an internal room. The bathroom or closets are usually the safest.
  • Adopt the tornado safety position with your arms over your head, in a crouched position on the ground. It is best to bring a blanket to cover yourself in case of broken glass. 

BE PREPARED – It is important for you to keep a Tornado Safety Kit available in your apartment. This should include:

  • A first aid kit with essential medication in addition to the usual items.
  • A battery powered radio, flashlight, and extra batteries.
  • Canned and other non-perishable food and a hand operated can opener.
  • Bottled water.
  • Sturdy shoes and work gloves.
  • Written instructions on how to turn off your homes utilities.
  • Whistle or other loud device

Need Assistance? To report a concern or issue, please contact the Falcon Heights Front Desk at 419-372-4040 and the Desk Staff will send appropriate staff over to help you.
