November 30, 2022

Every home has possible threats, including your apartment in Fishers. Pests, broken things, unsupervised pets, lit candles, and more can put you and others in danger. Fortunately, with a little forethought and assistance from your apartment’s maintenance staff, you can make your home and apartment community safer for everybody. If you’re concerned you’ve forgotten something, our apartment safety tips for Fishers Residents can help.

Report Broken Things To The Maintenance Staff

If an appliance or fixture in your Fishers apartment breaks down, report it as soon as possible to your apartment management or maintenance team. Malfunctioning kitchen appliances can lead to a gas leak or fire. Leaky pipes can burst eventually or cause water damage and mold. Rough edges can cause cuts, and detached flooring can cause falls. You should also point out broken things outdoors in the community, like railings, playground equipment, fences, and fallen tree limbs. The maintenance staff will gladly take care of these issues for everyone’s safety.

Secure Each Of Your Doors

Even if you feel safe in your neighborhood and town, break-ins can still happen. You might not be allowed to put in a security system for your Fishers apartment, but locking your doors is a simple way to keep intruders at bay. If you believe your locks aren’t secure enough, talk to the property management team about replacing them.

Fight Pest Problems As Soon As You See Them

Everyone finds a pest inside at least once. But if you see lots of insects or other animals, get rid of them without delay. These critters can spread diseases and contaminate your food. You’ll find many home pest control products at stores for a quick fix. But you should also get help from your maintenance crew when finding infestations or rodents. They can work with an exterminator and repair cracks and holes where creatues come in.

Keep An Eye On Your Pets

Unsupervised pets can pose a danger to themselves and others, even in the most pet-friendly apartment communities. Don’t let your pet roam free where someone or something could harm them. Only take them off a leash outside if your apartment has a leash-free dog park. And ask neighbors not to pet your dog if it isn’t fully socialized.

Drive Safely Around Your Community

There are outside apartment safety tips in Fishers too, including driving safely. Follow the posted speed limits in your neighborhood, look out for pedestrians, and don’t drive distracted. Keep your car locked to prevent break-ins. And look for ice when walking or driving in the parking lot during winter.

Follow Good Fire Safety

Every house fire is scary, but an apartment fire puts multiple households at risk. If your apartment management permits burning candles or grills, always take precautions. Blow out candles before you leave or fall asleep. Don’t use open flames near children and pets. Better yet, use candle warmers or electric candles.

Don’t leave a grill unattended, and put it several feet away from buildings, trees, pets, and children. Always extinguish flames by soaking the charcoal or completely closing the vents for several hours before putting away the grill.
