| IMPORTANT INFORMATION IN CASE OF POWER FAILURES
At a recent Emergency Management Meeting, the Committee wants to bring to your attention that
Jersey Central Power & Light has a program in place for residents needing special assistance
during a prolonged power outage. There is an application form that needs to be completed by your
Physician and returned to JCP&L. Once this form is completed and returned, you will be notified
that you are enrolled in the Critical Customer Care Program. This program is designed to assist
customers who rely on certain electrically operated medical equipment.
If you have questions, call 800-662-3115.
Are you being bothered by sales and robo calls on your home phone? If so, here is a
place to sign up to help reduce those annoying calls. Once you do this, your phone
will only ring once, and then they will end the call so you don't even have to answer.

Our new Security Company, USAA has been working hard and reporting daily to the office.
They report any events that they have been told are important to us. In recent months, some
of the activities reported are a follows:
Speeding, fence damage (waiting on the Township to repair), solicitors, exterior lights which
malfunctioned, suspicious vehicles, persons or activity; parking in the wrong direction, parking
in driveways blocking sidewalks and open doors or garages after 10 PM on the nights they
patrol; parking in handicap spots without a tag or license plate, dogs without leashes.
USAA rotates their schedule with some evenings and some days. This is so that no pattern
of when a guard is on duty can be discerned.
Some of the things we as residents can do, no matter where we live to protect ourselves are
Mount exterior lights and/or motion sensor lights
Trim trees and shrubs near doors and windows
Install dead bolt locks and/or double key locks on doors with glass
Use a metal or wooden rod in the track on glass slliding doors
Use automatic light timers
While away, have someone pick up or stop your mail, newspapers or packages. Have your
trash can (if left out) moved from the street to the side of your home
Leave a talk radio station on while you are away
REMEMBER - THE GREATEST WEAPONS IN THE FIGHT TO PREVENT BURGLARIES
ARE LIGHT, TIME AND NOISE.
PHONE SCAMS ARE AIMED AT SENIORS!
You hear and read about this constantly but are you taking it seriously? Do not engage in any
phone conversations with someone you don't know. Never give out any personal information
over the phone. If you have Caller ID, use it! Don't answer the phone if you don't know who
the caller is. Let your answering machine or voice mail take the call so you can screen out the
imposters. It is so easy to avoid being scammed.
Don't converse with strangers.
JUST HANG UP!
EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT GUIDELINES
In the event of an emergency, the follwoing guidelines will be in effect at LHS. The
Clubhouse will serve as an information center. Its purpose will be to supply residents with
available services and resources from local organizations and to share timely information. It
will not be used to house or provide physical provisions to residents.
The Chairman of the Emercency Management Committee will contact a Trustee to get
clearance to open the Clubhouse. Security will also be contacted.
Important information will be passed on to residents via a robo call.
Residents who plan to leave the community for an extended amount of time, will be asked to
complete an Evacuation Form available at the Clubhouse during the emergency. These
forms will provide us with contact and status information to use throughout the current
Emergency Management Committee members will be called. Organization contacts will be
assigned. Available members will meet at the Clubhouse and assist in completing forms,
answer questions, gather and provide information from organizations, and help guide
residents through the emergency. They will also review and discuss the current situation to
determine if additional actions are needed.
