Finding House Numbers - JVFD Print
Sunday, 22 January 2017 20:32

A Note from JVFD about House Numbers in our Neighborhoods

As the trucks drive around the neighborhoods, the firefighters have noticed that many of the home address numbers are hard to find or non-existent. This is usually due to the numbers fading with age, painters painting over them or plant life growing and blocking them. This isn’t a good thing. We are really good at finding streets in the neighborhood but identifying individual homes requires visible address numbers. When seconds count, the last thing you want to see is emergency vehicles passing your home because they can’t see you address!

This should be an easy fix for all. If the numbers are faded or painted over, replace them. If the plants are blocking them, it’s time for a trim. If they are missing completely, it was time for new ones anyway. Now, for where to put them. The best thing to do is follow what was originally done in the neighborhood. If all the numbers on the homes are in the same general place, it will be much easier for first responders to locate them during an emergency. On the front wall, over the garage or on the mail box, it doesn’t matter, as long as we can see them, day or night.

With your help, we can shave precious seconds off response times, in your neighborhoods, during emergency incidents.

(And Neighbor to Neighbor:  Reflective Numbers are also much easier to read at night, and in the daytime too when numbers are posted on a dark background or mailbox post).

Oak Trees -- Prune in Winter Print
Saturday, 12 November 2016 14:25

Our NASWC community has many oak trees, some of which are very old and large.  Our beautiful trees are an important part of our neighborhood environment and we encourage neighbors to take care of their trees, especially when deciding to prune the oaks.  The US Forest Service and Texas A&M Forest Service provide much information about Oak Wilt, how to identify and manage, as well as steps to take to prevent the disease.  Visit their website, texasoakwilt.org for information.

The least hazardous periods for pruning are during the coldest days in midwinter and extended hot periods in mid to late summer.  Regardless of season, all pruning cuts or other wounds to trees should be treated immediately with a wound or latex paint.  And please remember,

November through January -- Time to Prune

Don't Prune - February to June.
