Please accept a “thank you” from Corvias Military Living if you have already cooperated with our maintenance team’s annual preventative maintenance and safety inspection at your home. Below I have provided some background information to better inform you about the program’s purpose.
The primary goal is to ensure your home meets quality maintenance and basic safety standards. This means we strive to reduce the chance of an untimely breakdown or failure of appliances or other systems in your home. We want to avoid or minimize disruptions and costs associated with unnecessary repairs which we can otherwise prevent with routine, annual maintenance and inspections. Therefore our visit to your home consists of providing practical service for certain systems as well as making detailed records about the condition of the interior and exterior of the home.
Corvias maintenance technicians gather information which assists us in planning for future repairs or replacement of component parts or systems. Additionally, they check fire extinguishers and smoke and carbon monoxide detectors for proper operation. They also change batteries in the devices that use them. During the inspection, our maintenance team evaluates water heaters, heating and air conditioning systems, electrical panels, light fixtures and flooring and other finishes such as carpeting and hardwood. They also evaluate the general building exterior, including doors, windows, gutters, downspouts, and landscaping.
We hope this information provides you with a better understanding of our annual inspection. Please feel free to share any of your observations about your home with our maintenance technicians during their visit. We greatly appreciate your cooperation as we continue to provide you with an improved quality of life at McConnell Air Force Base.

Where did the summer go? The first day of school is just around the corner. The beginning of the school year can be overwhelming. With a little preparation, you and your family will be ready to begin the new academic year. No one can be fully prepared for the year ahead, but these tips might make it a little easier. Read more…
Check-Ups and Immunizations
Review your child’s immunization record to ensure it is up-to-date. It’s also a great time to have your child’s physical, eye and dental exams completed before school starts. Remember, students will need a sports physical or signed release form to participate in sport activities. Visit Tricare for more information.
The cost of clothes, shoes and supplies doesn’t have to bust your budget. Most school websites have supply lists posted. Before going shopping, take a complete assessment of what you have and what you really need. During the month of August, some states offer a “sales tax holiday,” which means that certain products will not be taxed during a set period of time. Get the most “bang” for your buck; check to see if your state participates in sales tax holidays.
Get back into a routine.
Two to three weeks before classes start, have your child go to bed earlier and get up earlier. Increase the time increments every few days and your child will be less resistant to the early morning wake-up calls for school. In addition, have your child lay out clothing the night before. It teaches organization and saves time.
Establishing a homework routine and providing a quiet, well-lit place to complete assignments is important for children. Tutor.com can help too, with tutoring sessions available to children in grades 1-12.
Safety and Bullying.
Create a plan in case of an emergency. Practice a safety word or code with younger children. Talk to your child about bullying and how to stay safe at school.
Have a great school year!
A typical family consumes 182 gallons of soda, 29 gallons of juice, 104 gallons of milk and 26 gallons of bottled water a year. That's a lot of containers - make sure they're recycled!
