Maintenance Safety Reminders
  • Thermostat Setting: Please set your thermostats to a minimum of 60 degrees Fahrenheit to maintain a suitable indoor temperature. This will help prevent any potential freezing of pipes. 
  • Clear Heating Vents: It is vital to keep all heating vents clear and unobstructed. We kindly request that you refrain from placing any items on top of or in front of heating units. This allows for proper airflow and helps to optimize heating efficiency throughout your homes. In addition, this step helps to prevent fires within your unit. 
Parking Reminders: 
  • As we anticipate snow accumulation, all residents are kindly asked to park their vehicles inside their garage if available. For additional vehicles and those without a garage, please park in a concentrated area to facilitate our snow removal crew's access for thorough snow removal. Once the snow has been significantly cleared from the parking area, residents may relocate their vehicles to the cleared area. Our crew will then return to completely clear any remaining untouched areas.
  • Fire lanes and hydrants must remain clear at all times. 
 
In the event of Fire, Medical or Police Emergency please dial 911

Important Community Safety Information and Reminders
To ensure HVMA remains a secure and safe community, Compliance Manager William McKenna and Southbury Police Sergeant Chris Grillo remain in constant contact with each other on a weekly basis. We share information and ideas to assist our vibrant campus and to ensure clear communication between the town and Village. Recently, we discussed the local crime trends that are affecting the Town of Southbury, the surrounding communities, and the Village. We have put together an “HVMA/Southbury Police Safety Flyer” to be shared with all our residents.  
Please click here to see an informative flyer.
 
The safety and well-being of our community is of utmost importance. Please take a moment to review the following safety information.
 
Fire Safety:
  • Keep all heating vents clear to prevent the risk of fire.
  • Ensure that access to your doorways and pathways is unobstructed, allowing for easy evacuation in case of an emergency.
  • If you detect the smell of smoke or gas, dial 911 immediately for assistance. In the event that you live in a 4-plex and your smoke alarm sounds, evacuate your unit promptly and contact 911.
  • Do not store items on your stovetop or inside your oven
  • If you notice evidence of burn marks on your ceiling or walls, blackening around your outlets, melted cords, etc.  do not hesitate to call 911.

Community Safety:
If you sense a threat to safety or believe a crime is in progress, please do not hesitate to call 911.
Observe and adhere to all posted stop signs within the community. It is crucial to slow down and comply with our community speed limit of 25 MPH. Inform your family and friends about the posted speed limit as well. Road safety is everyone's responsibility.
At the request of the HV Community, Southbury Police Department in collaboration with Bill McKenna, Compliance Officer, have arranged for a speed trailer to be placed in and around Heritage Village within the next few weeks. 
 
Medical Emergencies:
In the event of a medical emergency affecting please contact 911 immediately for professional assistance.
 
Emergency Access:
We have encountered challenges in responding promptly to emergencies due to a lack of access to certain units. It is a rule: “Article IV, Section 3, subsection F — Except for two-car Berkshire garage doors, all unit owners/ residents shall furnish the HVMA Safety and Security or its successor with passkeys to all current locks installed on their unit and garage doors.”
 
To ensure a swift response during emergencies, we kindly request that you provide a spare key, which will be securely stored in Dispatch. This will enable us to quickly and easily access your unit if the need arises. To provide a key stop by the Heritage Village Center, Monday through Friday from 8:30a.m. to 3:30p.m.
 
Unit Safety:
We urge all homeowners to review the Maintenance Standards posted on our community website Heritage Village Master Association (heritagevlgct.org). Familiarizing yourself with these standards will help maintain safety within your own unit.
For maintenance emergencies that occur after hours, please contact the Safety Officer. It is important to note that our crew will only be called in after hours for repairs if they pose a threat to safety. Otherwise, a work order will be created to be addressed during hours of operation.
To contact a Safety Officer please call 203-264-4001. If the officer is assisting another resident, you will be asked to leave a detailed voice message. The officer will be sure to return your call promptly.
 
By working together and keeping these tips in mind, we can potentially save a life. 
Thank you for your attention and cooperation in maintaining a safe community.
 
Take Care with Space Heaters!
With temperatures dropping, you may want to plug in your space heater. The National Fire Protection Association reports that space heaters caused nearly half of home heating fires from 2011 to 2015, and were responsible for 85 percent of home heating fire deaths. 
Place your space heater on a level, flat surface.
Inspect the heater for cracked or broken plugs, and loose connections. If the heater is damaged, do not use it.
Plug your space heater directly into a wall outlet. Do not use with a power strip or extension cord, as these can overheat and cause a fire.
Locate space heaters out of high traffic areas and doorways where they may pose a tripping hazard.
Keep anything that can burn at least 3 feet away from your space heater, and keep pets and children away from the heater.
Never leave a space heater unattended. Turn it off when you leave the room.
Never use a space heater while you sleep.
 

Village Parking Reminder
As the holiday season is upon us, we have noticed an uptick in parking violations within our community. To ensure a safe and joyful holiday for all, we kindly request that both residents and their guests adhere to our community rules regarding parking. By following these guidelines, we can maintain a harmonious community for everyone.
  • Emergency Vehicle Access: It is essential to maintain clear access for emergency vehicles at all times. Please refrain from parking in fire lanes or blocking fire hydrants. Your cooperation in this matter could potentially save lives during an emergency. 
  •  Vehicle Registration: All residents must register their vehicles with our community's safety team. Upon registration, you will receive a vehicle sticker that must be affixed to the rear driver-side window. This helps our security personnel differentiate between authorized and unauthorized vehicles within our premises. To register your vehicle, stop by the Heritage Village Center, Monday through Friday from 8:30a.m. to 3:30p.m.
  • Avoid Blocking Garages: Blocking residential garages inconveniences fellow residents who need access to their parking spaces. Please be mindful and refrain from blocking garage entrances or exits at any time.
  • One Vehicle Per Designated Spot: To ensure that all residents have fair access to parking spaces, we kindly request that each household restrict their vehicles to one designated spot. It is not appropriate to have one vehicle hold two parking spots.
  • 15-Minute Parking Zones: In areas designated as 15-minute parking, please avoid overstaying the allotted time. This allows for quick and convenient parking options for those who need to make brief stops, such as dropping off or picking up items.
To learn more about our parking policies, violations and towing procedures please refer to the 2022 Approved Revised Rules and Regulations found on the HVMA Website APPROVED OCTOBER 25 2022 NEW RULES HANDBOOK TWO (002) (003).pdf (heritagevlgct.org)
 
Overflow Parking:
Starting from the month of December, overnight parking will be permitted in the Paddock parking area for both residents and their guests. We are hopeful this decision will aid in reducing parking congestion within the clusters.
 
Parking in the Paddock area is at your own risk. We urge residents and guests to take necessary precautions and secure vehicles properly. Vehicles that are parked within this area after January 2nd are subject to fines and/or towing.
 
Your cooperation and adherence to these parking rules will greatly contribute to the overall safety of our community during this festive season. Let us all work together to create an enjoyable and respectful environment for everyone.
