Number Your Home
Seconds Matter to Emergency Service Providers
Properly posting highly visible property numbers on your home and/or property (mailbox, light post, etc.) will allow for prompt response and service from the police, fire and ambulance departments.
Numbers should be visible from the street, reflective, and be at least 3 inches in height. Consider posting both sides to ensure the approaching emergency service provider can identify the house regardless of travel direction. Snowplow barriers protecting mailboxes should also be posted.
