Meadow Park is Becoming a Fire Year Fire Sprinkler Certified Community!

It’s really happening  here in Meadow Park! We are becoming five-year fire sprinkler certified! This is exciting. Very few communities like ours actually do this. Most townhouse communities rely on the Owners to individually have this done, but it never happens that way!  And then disaster strikes and everyone living there is at risk for a fire emergency…

But now, because of my persistence and volunteer work with this situation, I was able to move the HOA into that direction…They now see how important it is to maintain our community in a fire safe manner. Our HOA is using our HOA assessments to pay for all of these fire sprinkler system inspections, as well as the repairs that are needed to make our systems work…. After the repairs are made we receive our reports which shows our fire sprinkler systems are in good working order..  It is the best use of our assessments yet!! We will all feel so much better that this got done.

And as a result,  our townhouses will have an increase in value! This is going to make our property values increase quite a bit. And that is always a good thing here in Marin County.. We are going to see this happen soon..There is no doubt about that.

Here is a link to an online publication called The Communicator which explains all about a “Five Year Fire Sprinkler Certification”: The Communicator is a publication of the Community Associations Institute, Bay Area Central California Chapter. This is from Volume 4, Issue 2, Spring 2011:

I received this second notice shortly after I had my own fire sprinkler system tested on February 9th. I am hoping more Owners will get their appointments scheduled soon. This second notice included a phone number too…I am glad that they added the phone number to this second notice…

But, the HOA still has not done a very good job of explaining what this is all about. That is why I am blogging here to let others know that this is a very big and important project and well worth the Owner’s money…

This is the second notice regarding our Fire Sprinkler Inspection for our five year certification.

The HOA should be communicating more about this certification process and make sure every Owner takes part… Otherwise we will still be at risk for a fire emergency here in Meadow Park!
