National Good Neighbor Day: First Responder Edition
Posted September 29, 2016
For the past couple of years, Northwood Hills has recognized residents who were nominated for exemplifying what it means to be a Good Neighbor. We celebrated the kind and thoughtful people around us and expressed our gratitude for the sense of community we enjoy in our neighborhood. This year, NHHA would like to acknowledge our Dallas Fire & Rescue first responders, who are close by and ready 24/7 to help with a fire or medical emergency situation at our homes. These firefighters and EMS personnel are our Good Neighbors every day, even when we don't need them. When we do, they are invaluable.
Did you know 2 fire stations serve Northwood Hills? While Station 56 at Fretz Park is responsible for maintaining hydrants and answering calls north of Spring Valley and Station 22 near Coit & Churchill Way handles hydrants and calls south of Spring Valley, they often back each other up on severe incidents.
Did you know firefighters work 24-hour shifts? They eat, sleep, and stay at their firehouses while they await their next call to duty. For part of the week, the station is their "home" and their work needs are different from other professions.
How Can We Show Our Appreciation? NHHA has reached out to Station 56 and Station 22 to determine their needs. Anything we can provide to make their work environment more comfortable would be much appreciated, because this is their "home away from home." If you're interested in helping Station 22, please review this list. For Station 56, please review this list. If you aren't able to donate any of the goods on their lists, we can gladly accept monetary donations (cash or check made payable to NHHA) to pool together for the purpose of buying one of their high dollar items. Please email to arrange your donation.
We kindly request you do not take donations directly to the fire stations, as this is a coordinated effort on behalf of Northwood Hills. We want to ensure monetary donations are utilized in the most efficient manner and that gift card donations are distributed fairly among the personnel. Donations of large goods may require additional logistical planning, so please contact NHHA for arrangements. We will be accepting donations over the next 2 weeks, until Wednesday, October 12th.
NHHA is proud to recognize our first responders for being Good Neighbors and we appreciate your support in this endeavor!
Northwood Hills Supports Our Dallas Police Officers
Posted September 18, 2016
After the tragic events on July 7th in Downtown that resulted in the deaths of five officers and injuries to numerous others, many residents reached out to us for guidance on how to show support for our first responders. We provided resources for filling immediate needs at that time and began working on long-term initiatives for when the inevitable decline in public support would occur throughout the city.
With that in mind, we're pleased to share the results of the first project we worked on - a custom yard sign for Northwood Hills residents who want to publicly display their support for Dallas police officers year-round. The corrugated plastic sign (shown above) is 1-sided, 18" x 24" in size, and included a yard stake.
In conjunction with a sponsorship by All Saints Catholic School, Northwood Hills Homeowners Association was able to offer one yard sign to each member household FREE of charge.
If you are a member and forgot to reserve your sign, we may be able to accommodate you. If you are a non-member and we have signs remaining, you may purchase one at cost. Email for more information.
NHHA would like to thank our generous sponsor All Saints Catholic School
for underwriting a portion of the cost of the signs. All Saints Catholic School provides a faith-filled environment for students in PreK-3 through 8th grade, so that they can grow into the people God created them to be. Students are encouraged to participate fully in their own education and are given many opportunities to explore and develop their unique talents and gifts. All Saints Catholic School students benefit from a Blue Ribbon School of Excellence education, coupled with a warm and inviting atmosphere that molds students who are ready to lead, serve, and inspire others.

Did You Get A Security Sign?
Posted July 28, 2016
NHHA is excited to introduce a brand new benefit for its members this year. The sign above proudly announces that Northwood Hills is patrolled by armed security and monitored by video surveillance. The crisp, eye-catching design and clear message on the sign make it a meaningful addition to the multi-faceted approach that each homeowner needs to be taking in their security endeavors. Want to get one for your yard? If you're not a current member, join NHHA or renew your membership today. Members need to then fill out the Know Your Neighbors grid. Meet your neighbors for the first time or confirm their contact information and we'll be happy to reward your efforts with a yard sign. After completing at least 4 houses other than your own, email to let us know and we'll deliver a sign to your address.
The Dallas Police Department believes engaged neighbors are a great deterrent to crime because an extra set of eyes keeping watch on your property means suspicious activity can be reported before it turns into a criminal offense. Call 911 to keep your neighbors safe, and they'll do the same for you!
We encourage all residents to complete the grid, but we can only offer the sign incentive for current members. Why not join NHHA to start enjoying the myriad benefits that come along with membership?
