After a long school year, summer is finally here! It’s nice to know you can take time to enjoy the warmth the summertime brings. Please stop by the Community Office to meet the neighborhood team and let them know if there is anything they can do to improve your housing experience. It is important that you and your family know we are here for you.
June 18th we will celebrate Father’s Day. This is not a federal holiday. Organizations, businesses and stores are open or closed, just as they are on any other Sunday in the year. Nevertheless, we can use this day to recognize the father or father figure in our lives. Moreover, we can be the father to our children that they deserve
During this month we will also celebrate Flag Day on Wednesday June 14th. In 1916, President Woodrow Wilson designated June 14 as Flag Day, the day we honor our flag. However, it would be President Harry S. Truman that signed it as an Act of Congress in 1949, making that same day National Flag Day.
As think on this time of year, that will bring fun, celebration, and travel to many of our families, I would like to thank each of our military families for what you do every day to preserve our way of life.
School is out and summer is finally here! This is the time for baseball games, cook outs, family gatherings, and playing hide & seek! Here are some safety tips to help keep you and your family safe this summer:
- The weather is beautiful outside – the days are longer which means more time to play outdoors. Please ensure that you are familiar with the installation child supervision policy. This policy is in place to ensure the safety of the children of the community.
- The summer time temperatures can reach a real feel of over a 100, in a locked car, that temperature is much higher. Do not leave a child or an animal in a vehicle. If you see a child or pet in a locked car, please remember to call 911 for assistance.
- Pools – only wading pools 12” in height or less, are allowed in the backyard and must be supervised while in use. Pools should be emptied out daily and turned over when not in use for safety purposes. Still water will attract pesky mosquitos.
- Grills – we love the taste of freshly grilled hamburgers – please remember to use your grill in the back of your home and keep it 10 feet away when in use.
- Landscaping – please check to see what day your street is scheduled to be mowed so that you can ensure that your yard is ready. Keeping your grass mowed will help reduce insects in your yard during the hot summer months.
- Lock your doors when not at home even if you are right next door, at the park, at the pool, will be right back, etc. – PLEASE lock your door. For security purposes our maintenance technicians will not enter an “unlocked” home when responding to a routine work order. Also, make sure that you secure your car and do not leave valuables in your vehicle.
- Edwards Air Force base is a pet-friendly installation. There is a two-pet limit and each pet is subject to a $200 refundable pet deposit per pet. Exotic pets, such as monkeys, snakes, etc. are not permitted. In addition, Corvias has adopted the Air Force policy on banned/aggressive breeds. The Community Office can provide you with a copy of this policy or you can find it online here.
To ensure you and your family (to include your four legged fur babies) are staying hydrated and know the warning signs: Beat the Heat
Hydrate to make sure that you are drinking plenty of water to reframe from becoming dehydrated.
Educate yourself on being exposed to excessive heat. Please check the weather reports for heat index and watch for the warning signs.
Attentive seek medical attention if you show signs of dizziness, nausea, vomiting, cramping, or increase in heart rate.
Temperature will cause heat overexertion. Stay in air conditioning or shaded areas. Take hourly breaks especially if you are working outdoors or exercising.
Summer time is a great time to build wonderful memories. We care for our residents and we want you to be safe this summer!! If you have any additional questions, please feel free to reach out to your Community Center.
If a PCS is in your future we want to let you know more about our “surface clean” requirement for homes at the time of move out. The surface-clean requirement is designed to ease the “check-out” process for military families and eliminate “white glove” inspections. It is no longer necessary to hire a cleaning team to achieve the level of cleanliness considered acceptable for move out. If you would like to hire a cleaner or cleaning team please feel free to do so, but it is not necessary.
Surface-clean condition implies that a home is left clean throughout. When a home is cleaned regularly, it should only require a wipe down and sweep/vacuum at move-out to deliver surface-clean condition. In detail, this means that the appliances, cabinets (inside and out), counter tops and windowsills should be wiped down with a cleaning solution and then with clear water. In addition, the floors should be cleaned with the appropriate solution to remove dirt and grime. Carpeted floors should be vacuumed. All personal items and trash need to be removed from the house. If you have specific questions or concerns, your Community Office team can walk you through the process.
Keep curtains and shades closed to help keep sunlight out. The sun can increase the temperature in a room by several degrees.
Your community calendar can help you stay up-to-date on trash, recycling, lawn care, resident events and community activities.
You can even sync your community calendar with a personal Google calendar by clicking on the +Google button on the bottom right-hand corner of the calendar.
