Our lawn care service provider will be applying treatment to lawns in September, as weather conditions allow. Check the schedule below to see when your home will be treated.
Treatment areas will include the front and side yards of all homes as well as community entry areas. To make the application process as efficient as possible, we ask that you please remove all personal items from your front and side yard turf areas. Following the application, please allow approximately 30 minutes for the treatment to dry before allowing children and pets on the treated areas. The treatment application is not harmful to your family or pets. The drying period will heighten the effectiveness of the treatment and help you avoid tracking the material into your home. The product labels and material safety data sheets will be available at your Community Office for further information on the products used.

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 http://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.
