What is an EMergency?
Click below or call 1-785.223.5505 & follow prompts to report emergency.
For the best response when you call the after-hours emergency service, please provide the operator with:
- Your Name
- Your Address
- Your Telephone Number
- A Description of the Problem
Once you have contacted the emergency service, you must remain available so the maintenance technician can reach you by phone. At this time, he or she will make arrangements for resolving the problem.
NOTE: Contractors generally don’t work in the middle of the night, so we will get a qualified repairperson to the residence as soon as possible.
TRUE AFTER HOURS
This is only an emergency in extreme cold weather conditions and when the heater is not working due to mechanical malfunction. If your gas or electric is shut off for non-payment of your bill, call your electric or gas provider.
Please immediately exit the unit and contact Kansas Gas Service (or your gas provider) from a phone NOT located in the home. Sparks from
phones, even cell phones, can ignite gas. Natural gas has the unmistakable odor of rotten eggs. Then notify us promptly to report the result of the gas company’s visit. If you suspect an appliance is leaking gas, you may want to turn off the appliance and turn off the gas supply to that appliance (you should be able to find a shut-off handle somewhere on the supply line).
Call the emergency line immediately if there is a large amount of gushing water or flooding creating a risk of damage to the property and you cannot contain the leak. We will ask you if you suspect that a pipe has broken and if so, ask that you shut off the water valve to the broken pipe or to the exterior water main until a contractor arrives. (as soon as you move in, you should familiarize yourself with these shut off valves) Do everything within your power to contain any leaking or flooding. We will get a qualified contractor to the unit as soon as possible.
If you notice a water spot on the ceiling, water is slowly leaking in a window, or the basement has slight seepage, please create a work order in you tenant portal or contact us promptly the next day and we will send a contractor as soon as possible.
Exit the home. Call 911!! Then call us.
If you have gas heat or water, you should have a carbon monoxide detector installed if the unit does not already have one. They may be purchased at most any hardware or home improvement store. Carbon monoxide cannot be smelled. If your carbon monoxide detector sounds, take the following action:
- If no one is exhibiting symptoms of CO poisoning, then check the detector. If it is a battery operated one, take it outside. If it continues to sound, it may be defective (or the battery is low).
- Get all family members outdoors immediately.
- Call the Fire Department or 911.
It is preferred that you leave all windows and doors closed provided everyone has left the apartment. This will allow a more accurate reading of CO levels to be measured when the Fire Department responds. Any open doors or windows may allow CO gases to dissipate before the arrival of the Fire Department.
Electrical outage may be considered an emergency ONLY if there is no electricity throughout the unit AND:
- you have called Westar and Westar is not at fault or reporting an area outage
- you have checked all circuit breakers by flipping them hard to the OFF position and then hard to the ON position and have reset any and all GFI breakers (these are the little buttons sometimes found on outlets in bathrooms, kitchens, laundry rooms, and garages) OR any fuses have been checked and replaced if burned out.
Blown fuses are not considered after-hours emergencies. Please familiarize yourself with the fuse panel and/or breakers. You are responsible for your own light bulbs.
If the plumbing drain system ceases to work, none of the sinks, tubs or toilets will function properly.
The stoppage of one toilet or drain when other bathrooms are functional is not an emergency, see below.
