Fire safety: House and business address numbers
When you need the fire or police department, you want to be found quickly. Emergency response is about speed.
To assist emergency workers in finding your location in a timely manner please do the following:
- On houses, the numbers should be a minimum 3 inches high.
- Businesses numbers should be sized so that they can be easily visible from the fire department access road.
- Place numbers at the end of long driveways.
