Emergency Work

Emergency Work is broken carbon monoxide and smoke detectors, gas, water, and electrical lines. If you smell gas in your apartment, open the doors and windows, check to see if all burners are shut off and leave your apartment. Go to a neighbor's and call for help.
For water leaks or breaks, cut off the water and begin to dry the floor to prevent water damage to walls and floors. For electrical lines down, do not go near the loose wires and keep children away. For no power in the apartment, make sure the power is not out in the entire project area before you take action.
Lock outs are also considered an emergency. The leaseholder must be present for the property to be unlocked. The leaseholder will be charged for this service.
