Post your street address numbers clearly on your house or business!
In an emergency, seconds count! Clearly posted address numbers are vitally important in saving precious time when firefighters, police, or paramedics must immediately respond to your home or business.
House and business numbers should be:
• In plain, block numerals on a contrasting background.
• Unobstructed and large enough to be seen from the road.
• Facing the street named in your address.
• Displayed at your driveway entrance if your house is not visible from the road.
If your house is not visible from the road or is too far from the road for numbers to be seen at night, display your address at both the driveway entrance and on your house — especially if sharing a driveway. Always display numbers horizontally. Reflective numbers are very helpful, if large enough to be seen from a distance.
On many emergency medical or fire calls, first responders getting to where they are needed two to five minutes faster actually saves homes and lives. So post those addresses so they’re clear and bright, and reflective at night!
