Fire Safety - Bear Creek
Bear Creek takes the safety and security of all residents seriously and requests the participation of all community members to help with these efforts.
Sprinklers and Alarms
Each room is equipped with automatic fire suppression sprinklers, which are activated by heat/fire, not smoke. Each room is also equipped with a battery-powered smoke detector. Tampering or deactivating a smoke alarm is prohibited and may result in contract termination and/or prosecution. If Bear Creek staff observes detached, removed or disarmed smoke or building alarms, you may be fined and prosecuted. If your smoke alarm begins to chirp, please request a work order through Fix It and maintenance will replace the battery.
Sprinklers must be free of any obstructions and do not participate in any activity that may damage them. If sprinklers are activated by accident, they will release hundreds of gallons of water into your apartment and you will be billed for any damages.
