Security, Safety, and Emergency Preparedness Committee (SSEP)
Saturday-04-10-2021- @ 02:30
From the Herons Glen SSEP CERT Sub Committee:

What is CERT?

CERT (Community Emergency Response Team) is a program that educates and trains community members in disaster preparedness and basic response skills. These include fire safety, light search and rescue, and disaster medical operations. Using the lessons learned from presentations, hands-on-training, and exercises, CERT Members can assist others in their neighborhood or workplace when professional responders are not immediately available.

CERT training for new Herons Glen Community Volunteers

CERT Volunteers must complete a series of classroom training sessions. The training is offered FREE of charge by the North Fort Myers Fire Department and organized through the Herons Glen SSEP CERT Sub Committee.

The classes cover a variety of emergency skills including:
• Fire Suppression
• Light Search and Rescue
• Medical Triage
• Disaster Psychology
• Terrorism and Weapons of Mass destruction
How does CERT benefit the Herons Glen Community?

Residents trained by the CERT program have a better understanding of the potential threats to their home, workplace, and community. This awareness enables CERT members to minimize the impacts of hazards on themselves and their neighborhoods.

For more information or to sign up for a CERT Class, contact the SSEP SERT Team Coordinator Howard Nutt, 303-514-7619, or send him an email at nuttman4050@yahoo.com. If you contact Howard by telephone, please leave him a voice message with your name, telephone number, and Herons Glen address. Howard will return you call as soon as possible.

Next training classes for 2021:

April 20, 22, 27, 29-30 at the North Ft. Myers Rec Center 9:00 am – 11:00 am

Herons Glen HOA Quarterly Assessments
Friday-04-02-2021- @ 23:42
Herons Glen HOA 3rd Quarterly Assessments were due on April 1. Accounts not paid by April 15th will have a late fee and interest applied.
Residents who are not on Automatic Payments should mail their payments to the address on their statement. If you are using a bill pay service through your bank or sending payment without a coupon, the memo line should have the account number and payment mailed to the address listed below.
Payments sent to the address listed below are delivered directly to the bank and processed by the bank and deposited into the HOA Account. Residents are welcome to drop off their payment to the HOA Office. However, this method adds expense to the process, takes longer, and more people handle the check before it reaches the bank for deposit.

Herons Glen HOA quarterly assessment fee payments should be mailed to:

Herons Glen HOA, Inc.
P.O. Box 20685
Tampa, FL 33622-0685

Do not mail payments for the HGRD or for sub association quarterly assessments to this address.

If you do not have the tear off from your statement to include with your check or if you use bill pay with your bank please include your account # on the memo portion of your check.
If you are not sure about your lot number or have questions please contact Myers, Brettholtz & Co PA at 239-939-5775 or by email to
bookkeeping@mbcopa.com.

For the safety of all residents and their guests, please inform your visitors about the Herons Glen rules for the golf carts and vehicles. Please report the tag number, date and time for speeders or anyone running stop signs. We cannot do anything with just a car description.

Recently children have been observed driving golf carts. Golf cart drivers must be at least 18 years old or have a driver’s license. We encourage residents to report underage drivers to the HOA office at hoaoffice@heronsglenhoa.org. We do need the number on the side of the cart to identify who to contact.

Privately Owned Carts:

All vehicles including automobiles, carts, mopeds, bicycles, motorcycles, RV's or other mode of transport:

Owners or occupants residing in the Unit will be held fully responsible for any and all damages caused by the Owner/occupant or their negligence, or by that of their family or guests. The costs resulting from any and all such damages, including legal fees incurred by the Association, will be charged to the Owner’s Lot as a User Assessment under Article XI of the Declaration.

1. All must obey traffic signs and/or other posted traffic and parking instructions.
2. All vehicles must use caution when in the area of other vehicles or pedestrians.
3. No vehicles may be stored or left overnight on any Common Areas, including streets. (See the Security Policy for exceptions to this rule for RVs, Enclosed Trailers and Boat Trailers.)
