Lessons Learned (Irma)

Please add to this beyond existing prep list items, CERT prep list was excellent too:

Make friends and contact contractors before hurricane season.
Remind maintenance to put blue/yellow recycle bins in meter room, or do it your self.
When your power is on, or whenever, check on friends in nursing homes.
If you are replacing trees per code, Live Florida Oaks, or Palms, most likely to stand.
If hurricane is coming across FL from the Keys, probably shelter in place.  If it comes from east, leave!
Make sure you have phone recharger for the car, not just indoors.
Have a condo checker if you are away (not the Board!)
Anything still needs to be done, do it yourself.

Please read, the life you save may be yours!!!!

Lost Cat?

I have seen a dark colored cat roaming around Stratford H through J late this afternoon and also around 9 tonight.   I think Stratford G through J doesn't have power yet.  It looks like someone's pet that is looking for it's owner.  Just thought I would post this in case anyone is looking for their cat.

REC. FACILITY COMING BACK

Eva Rachesky via cenrecinc.onmicrosoft.com 

9:42 AM (2 hours ago)
to me, Joy, vicepresident3, Ed, Dan, Monica, Mark, Aja, Noreen, Kevin, Abby, Donald, unitedcivicorg, Steve
 
Good morning,

While the main clubhouse and Kent pool remain without power, the Hastings Clubhouse and all other pool areas have electricity.  Security has resumed their duties and my maintenance crew is working to set up the pool deck area.  The Hastings clubhouse is open to the residents, however, the pools will remain closed until tomorrow so that the chemicals can do their job and bring back the proper balance.  The tennis courts are open for play.

Please help to get the word out.  I have hope that the MCH power will be restored sometime today.

Thank you, Eva

Dedicated UCO Workers

Many thanks to UCO workers who answered the phone for inquiries from we evacuees.  Monday I was able to find 70% of CV was without power.  Many residents left to avoid the brutal heat. Glad to say Sussex K and L now have power 'tho it blinks off just when you get the computer connected, begin again :-)


Where is that big trailer of bologna sandwiches, I have been dreaming of one since Frances, Jeannie and Wilma ;-)

HURRICANE IRMA - SERVICES COORDINATION MEETING - SEPTEMBER 5, 2017


DOM GUARNAGIA ON A FEW NO COST/LOW COST IDEAS ON HURRICANE PREP.

-
LOW AND NO-COST THINGS TO DO BEFORE IRMA
It’s probably too late to stock up on water and batteries since there is a sense of havoc around the corner, however, there are a few simple things that we all can do to make hunkering down more comforting.
·         Change the setting on your refrigerator/freezer to a colder setting. If the electricity goes down, the contents will have more time to be useable before spoiling.
·         Fill some clean empty containers with water and pack as much as you can into voids in the freezer. This will prolong the shelf life of the contents and provide drinking water as the containers defrost.
·         Set the lever and apply tape over the drain in the bath tub and fill with water slightly below the overflow opening. This will store water for flushing your toilet for several days. If the electricity goes down throughout the area, pumps cannot deliver water to your sink/toilets.
·         Close your shutters by Thursday. They have been unused for some time and working on shuttering should be initiated early since the task will be daunting.
·         Plan to share the experience with someone who is elderly and alone. There is strength and reassurance with friends. 
·         If your critical medications are less than 10 days’ worth call your Pharmacy and Doctor to have an early refill or at least some additional meds provided before Friday.  
·          Pass the word to your neighbors who may not have a computer to receive these no-cost tasks.
·           Hopefully, the impact will be minimal. Prepare for the worst and ‘be prepared’.
