Do you have an emergency (or disaster) kit for your apartment? These kits are normally talked about on the news when large storms like hurricanes and tornadoes hit towns, but even something as simple as the electricity going out for a few days requires a kit and readiness.
One of the benefits to living in a Chico apartment is the amenities that are offered to you both inside your apartment and around the complex. While each complex has its own list of outdoor amenities, there are some that are universal. For instance, each complex has a swimming pool, lighted parking, and BBQs. The biggest and best amenity we have is our recreation room, also known as a clubhouse, which is available at almost all of the Chico apartment complexes.
No matter where you call home in the good old U.S. of A. there tends to be a season in which you are more careful than others.
East Coasters have hurricane season. During this season it’s important for them to keep an eye on the weather in case they need to evacuate or protect their homes.
Midwesterners have tornado/storm season. It’s important for them to keep their storm cellars stocked with essential supplies and have boards ready to protect their windows.
West Coasters, especially Californians, have fire season. This is a season that can seem to last for months on end and leaves you wondering if fall will ever show up. Even if there is no fire within your direct area, smoke can still be in the air.
According to the California Highway Patrol there were 175,351 vehicles stolen in California in 2017. That's a value of approximately $1.3 billion. That doesn't even include the thousands of car break-ins where thieves just smash and grab cellphones and other items left visible in cars. San Francisco is having a car break-in epidemic, with almost 30,000 vehicle break-ins recorded last year.
So how do you keep your ride safe from would-be thieves in your Chico and Redding apartments? Follow these simple rules to drastically reduce your risk...
The sun is out and the sky is blue, which means it's time to get out and enjoy the amenities at your Chico or Redding apartment. Cool off in the beautiful spacious pools or relax in the hot tub. Enjoy the warm weather and have a blast this summer.

It's no secret that Chico, like many cities is dealing with a homelessness problem. This is a multi-faceted issue that involves everything from mental health, to the local economy and unemployment, to substance abuse. The 2017 Homeless Point In Time Census & Survey Report estimates that around 0.88% of Butte County residents do not have a home. That's close to 2,000 people. The transient population in Chico is being hotly debated in the city council right now and views on how to help solve this problem vary greatly. Regardless of where you fall on the issue, it can be surprising to find that transients are regularly hanging out near your Chico apartment. So what do you do?
