Service Members and their families are strong and face many adventures throughout their military career. Military life can also be stressful at times and some may start to feel isolated, overwhelmed, or angry when dealing with challenging situations. These reactions can be common responses to life events. However, these feelings may be signs of more serious conditions. People coping with challenges may feel like there is no escape from their symptoms, leading them to have thoughts of suicide. If you or someone you know is experiencing a crisis call 1-800-273-TALK (8255) – press ‘1’ for the Military Crisis Line or send a text to 838255. You can also visit www.militarycrisisline.net.
If you or someone you know is talking about suicide get them assistance immediately with these three steps – Ask, Care, Escort. Ask your loved one if they are thinking of killing themselves. Care for your loved one – actively listen to show understanding, remove any means that could be used for self-injury. Escort your loved one – never leave them alone! Escort them to their chain of command, a chaplain, a behavioral health professional, or primary care provider.

Beginning October 1, 2015 the Resident Responsibility Guide will have a few updates. One of the updates regards compact florescent light (CFL) disposal. Please see the new disposal process below.
3-6 Electric/Electrical Panel Box/Light Bulbs (please see section B for updates)
a. Corvias will supply your home with electric light bulbs at the time of move-in. Residents agree to furnish replacement bulbs of the same type and wattage and install thereafter, with the exception of specialty bulbs.
b. The homes all have compact florescent Light (CFL) bulbs installed in the lighting fixtures. CFL light bulbs require special disposal. Corvias offers disposal of the CFL bulbs, you will need to take them to your Community Management Office and we will send them to the recycling center for you.
c. If residents suspect an electrical problem, the electrical breaker(s) should be shut off if it is safe to do so. These devices will be identified for all residents as a part of their move-in inspection.
Keep your refrigerator and freezer at the right temperature. The refrigerator should be between 38° F and 42° F and the freezer between 0° F and 5° F.
Your community calendar can help you stay up-to-date on trash, recycling, lawn care, resident events and community activities.
You can even sync your community calendar with a personal Google calendar by clicking on the +Google button on the bottom right-hand corner of the calendar.
