Do you have renter's insurance?
Corvias highly recommends that you carry a policy to protect you from the liability of costly repairs to the home you live in as well as for the loss by damage or theft of your personal property. In recent months, the trend has been that approximately 70% of all losses in our family housing areas were not covered by renters insurance. While we do not track the personal property losses in such cases, the average cost to repair a home as a result of a small stove fire or tub overflow has been approximately $2,500 per incident, an expense that is the resident’s responsibility in lieu of renters insurance.
Whether you are established and have a house full of personal property or are just starting off, renter’s insurance is a smart investment for anyone renting a home or apartment. Many policies also extend to personal property that are usually in your home but may be with you on vacation. For instance, if your camera is stolen out of our car while on vacation, many policies cover such losses. While the specifics of a renter's insurance policy will depend on the company and the person purchasing it, most plans include liability and property coverage on a number of potential disasters. Fires, thefts and accidents can occur at any time without any warning. If tragedy strikes, you want to be sure that you aren't left to recuperate losses on your own.

Come out March 17 throughout the day for your St. Patrick’s Day Treats and say hello to the RP staff! Don’t forget to wear your green!

During the month of March, Fort Bragg residents may notice a stronger chlorine smell and discoloration to their water. These are the results of changes to the disinfection of our water and the annual flushing of the water lines by Old North Utility Services (ONUS) and Harnett County. These measures help to control bacteria growth and alleviate any potential bacteriological problems in the system.
This process will require individuals on kidney dialysis machines to implement certain changes to their procedures and to consult with their doctor. Additionally, owners of tropical fish or other aquatic life will need to take certain precautions to ensure the health of their fish.
During this time, you may experience periods of discolored water. You can help alleviate this discoloration through turning on your faucets and running the water until it starts to clear up. If your water does not clear up within a reasonable time, please contact ONUS by submitting a service order request through the Directorate of Public Works (DPW) at (910) 396-0321. Linden Oaks residents can contact Public Utilities Water Treatment Plant Supervisor Allan O’Briant at (910) 893-7575, extension 3238.
If you have any questions about this temporary change in disinfection processes, please contact Amanda Owens, Environmental Health & Safety Supervisor for Old North Utility Services at 910‐495‐1311.
As a reminder, as stated in your lease, trailers are not permitted in the community. If you are actively loading or unloading due to move, please coordinate approval with your community office. The Military Police will be tagging and then towing trailers that are parked in the community. MWR does offer a secured storage location for your trailer, camper, and/or boat via the Fort Bragg RecPlex Auto Skills Center.
If your unit is having a meeting in the month of March, come by to see the Community Manager. You could host your meeting at the Randolph Pointe Clubhouse for FREE. An added bonus is that you will be entered to win a free lunch for your meeting.

Daylight Saving Time begins at 2 a.m. on March 12. Set all clocks forward one hour. It is also a good time to test smoke detectors. If alarm does not sound, contact your Community Office immediately.
Spring cleaning is an annual ritual for many people. It is an ideal time to check our homes for dangerous materials and unsafe conditions.
For a safer home, add these chores to your annual spring cleaning list:
- Check your house for any stored papers, magazines, or any other combustible materials you don’t need. Pay special attention to areas around your furnace, hot water heater, fire place and clothes dryer. Keep the area under your stairs clear of combustibles as well.
- Check your clothes dryer for proper venting- make sure vent flap operates properly and vent pipe is not restricted. Always use a lint filter, and make sure the lint filter is cleaned after every load of laundry.
- Properly discard any toxic or flammable materials you no longer need. Never mix any flammable or toxic materials together. Make sure that any paint or any other flammable materials is not stored near a heat source. Do not throw any rags that are soaked with flammables in the garbage.
- Check smoke detectors and change the battery if necessary. Check fire extinguisher for proper type and placement. Make and practice a fire escape plan now and involve everyone in the home.
We have experienced a mild winter this year and may need to use our AC system early as a result. We recommend that you test out your air conditioner before the weather heats up. If you have any concerns about your system working properly, do not hesitate to place a work order to have it evaluated by calling the work order into the Randolph Pointe Community Office.
Please keep in mind the following response times for air conditioning work orders:
- When the outside temperature is below 84, the ticket is considered “urgent” with a 48 hours response time.
- If the outside temperatures exceed 85 degrees, the work order is an “emergency” with a 4 hour response time.
Open draperies and blinds to allow warm sunlight to enter in daylight hours. Close draperies and blinds at night to maintain heat.
