FWHS landlords, properties and residents have experienced power and water service disruptions as our region emerges from the recent extreme winter weather event. Residents should report service disruptions directly to their landlord or property management company.
Landlords and property managers are expected to make repairs in a timely fashion and to provide residents periodic updates to keep them informed about pending repairs. A water service outage of 24 hours or longer is considered an emergency.
FWHS is aware of the current demand on repair crews. If your power or water disruption extends beyond 24 hours and your landlord is unresponsive, fill out the form below to report the concern.
