Broken water/sewer pipes, either inside or outside of the unit
Leaking water heaters
Electrical shortages (if smoke is visible)
Refrigerator/freezer not keeping food cold and MHA will not open within 24hrs
Heating failures between October 15th - April 15th and temperature is less than 50 degrees outside

* Please Note: A $100.00 nuisance charge will be assessed for non-emergency calls responded to as an emergency.
Emergencies will fall into one of two categories; 1) those happening during the regular workday or 2) those that occur after hours or on weekends.
Emergencies during the regular workday – Emergencies occurring during regular business hours will be immediately referred to the Supervisor. A work order with an emergency classification will be generated. In the event that maintenance cannot abate the emergency, a contractor’s service may be solicited. The emergency will be corrected or abated in 24 hours or less.
Emergencies after hours – The maintenance staff on-call will correct emergencies that occur after hours. In the event the problem cannot be abated in-house, the Maintenance Supervisor will call an outside contractor to ensure corrective action in 24 hours or less. The emergency will be corrected or abated in 24 hours or less.
