Ask yourself these questions:
•Can your house be found easily by passing cars?
•Is your house number easily found from the street?
•Can it be found quickly in an emergency?
•Can it be found at night?
•Can it be found from a distance?
•Can it be found when seconds count?
If the answer is NO, please consider putting up a new address sign with your house number.
Here are some recommendations:
•Post your address clearly and prominently at the end of your driveway and on your home.
•Posting your 9-1-1 address at the driveway entrance and on your home will alleviate any confusion as to whether emergency responders have the correct location.
•Try using something reflective or illuminated so that it can be seen in the evening as well as during the day.
•Use large numbers and make sure it can be seen from all directions.
•Do not assume since your mailbox is marked, you have posted your address mailboxes are not always at the entrance of a driveway.
Should you have questions concerning the display of your 911 Address, please contact City Hall at 318-628-3939
