Memo: Check and Maintain Working Smoke Detectors

The weekend’s tragedy in Brooklyn prompted this reminder today from management:

TO: All Shareholders

FROM: Shulie Wollman

Due to a tragic weekend fire in Brooklyn, all East River and Hillman Housing residents are urged to maintain working smoke detectors in more than one location within your apartment. The importance of having working smoke detectors cannot be overemphasized.

If anyone requires assistance in either purchasing or installing a smoke detector, please telephone our maintenance office at 212-677-5744 to arrange a consultation or submit a maintenance ticket online at

Thank you for your active participation in this matter, which could save your life or the life of a fellow cooperator.
