How To Display Your Address
We must find you before we can help you. Is your address
When you request the assistance of emergency personnel such as
Police, Fire or Ambulance, they need to be able to find you.
The easiest and best way is to have your address displayed
correctly. A County ordinance requires your address be
displayed as it is below (Good Addressing). This helps the
9-1-1 Center get help to you quickly.
Large numerals - Good contrast
Same location from above
but from the opposite direction
The County Ordinance requires your address be displayed
visibly from the road. This requires numbers at least
3 inches tall, preferably reflective with a black
background, contrast is the key. The numbers can be
displayed on the house, mailbox (both sides) or a post
near the road. You can be fined if you don't comply.
