Cigarette Butts

Dear Owners/Residents,

We at Sunwood Condominiums, in an effort to keep our grounds safe and clean, ask that those who wish to smoke keep our floors clean by disposing of their UNLIT cigarette butts inside the proper trash receptacles and not in our walkways and/or landscaped areas.
Proper disposal includes discarding the unlit butts into your own garbage and not in common areas where they can disturb other residents, as well as damage our lawns and walkways.
ü  Cigarettes that are left lit and dumped on the grounds are a fire hazard and will result in a violation.
ü  Cigarettes that are left on the ground are unsightly and deter guests, as well as lower property values.
We rely on our residents to help us keep our home a safe and clean place to live.

Fire Alarm Safety

Dear Owners/Residents,
 In an effort to keep our residents safe, we would like to remind our owners, and their tenants, that individual smoke detectors inside of their units are their own responsibility. If a smoke detector inside your unit is making a beeping noise most likely it is in need of new batteries and it is the responsibility of the tenant/owner to make sure their smoke detectors are in working order.
The smoke detectors inside the unit are for your own safety. Do not disabled or disconnect the smoke detector or fire alarm horn inside your unit.
If there is a fire inside of a unit, owners/residents must follow protocol by going into the hallway and activating the fire alarm system by pulling the indicated fire alarm pull station. This is essential as the individual smoke detectors are not connected to the fire alarm system.
We hope all our residents will join us in our continued efforts to keep Sunwood Condominiums a safe place to live.

Please be aware that in order to protect the equipment of the pool from the effects that we may experience from Hurricane Dorian and any related storms, on Friday, August 30, 2019 our personnel will be turning off the pump system and feeder system. They will also be reinforcing the chemicals in the pool to help maintain it during the storm.

Be prepared for Dorian

Hurricane season is here and we want our residents to be safe during the coming storms. Below are some tips to remember during a hurricane to keep you and your loved ones safe as well as where to find a Hurricane Toolkit with all the information you will need on safe practices before, during and after a storm:
  • If told to evacuate, do so immediately. Do not drive around barricades.
  • If sheltering during high winds, go to a FEMA safe room, ICC 500 storm shelter, or a small, interior, windowless room or hallway on the lowest floor that is not subject to flooding.
  • If trapped in a building by flooding, go to the highest level of the building. Do not climb into a closed attic. You may become trapped by rising flood water.
  • Listen for current emergency information and instructions.
  • Use a generator or other gasoline-powered machinery outdoors ONLY and away from windows.
  • Do not walk, swim, or drive through flood waters. Turn Around. Just six inches of fast-moving water can knock you down, and one foot of moving water can sweep your vehicle away.

Develop an Emergency Plan
·        Include answers to questions like:  What do I need to do to secure my home, car and boat, and who will help me?  Where am I going to stay during the hurricane and what are the evacuation routes?   Where will my pets stay?   If I plan to stay at home, what do I need to do to be prepared and where in my home will  I ride out the storm? Emergency operations officials urge residents to prepare to be self-sufficient for up to 14 days – without running water or electricity.   Review your emergency plan with your family.          Photograph or videotape your home – inside and outside – for insurance purposes.

Address Special Needs
If you or anyone you know has special needs in case of evacuation, contact your local emergency management office. Find the phone number at If someone in your home is dependent on electric-powered, life-sustaining medical equipment, review your family emergency plan for back-up power or make arrangements to relocate when a storm warning is issued.

Gather Documentation

Gather important documents and put them in a waterproof container.
·         Insurance policies
·         Health cards
·         List of medications
·         Birth certificates
·         List of important phone numbers
·         Your FPL account number

Gather Supplies

·         Purchase bottled water.
·         Gather supplies such as: non perishable food, non electric can opener, disposable utensils, matches, lighter, medications and prescriptions, personal hygiene supplies, baby supplies, pet food, trash bags, paper towels, tissues, toilet paper, soaps and detergent.
·         Check radio and flashlight batteries
·         Obtain cash in case ATM’s are not working
·         Fill up your car with gas
·         Charge your cell phone

Make Safety a Top Priority

If you use a portable generator, read and follow all the manufacturer’s instructions. Be sure to set it up outside – not in your home or garage – and connect appliances directly to it. Do not wire your generator directly to your breaker or fuse box, because the power you generate may flow back into power lines and cause injuries. 
Do not travel until it is safe to do so.

Immediately call 911 to report dangerous or hazardous conditions. To report downed power lines or damage to FPL poles, wires or transformers call FPL at 800-4-OUTAGE.

Stay far away from downed power lines, and flooded and debris-laden areas that may be hiding downed power lines. Do not touch anything that may be touching a downed power line.

If your roof or windows leak, water in your walls and ceiling may come into contact with electrical wiring. Immediately turn off your circuit breakers, disconnect all electrical appliances that are still plugged in and turn off all wall switches. Remember, never stand in water while operating switches or unplugging any electrical device.

Don’t use candles; use battery-operated flashlights and lanterns instead.

Be cautious when using a grill, portable stove or other emergency cooking devices.

Make emergency repairs only when it is safe to do so. Repairs that prevent looting or further damage should have top priority, but only if the repair can be done safely.
