911 Address Signs

Each house and building has a 911 street address.  The visibility of signs with these numbers are very important to emergency vehicles responding to calls for assistance.  The numbers should be posted so they are highly visible from the road and can either be placed on the building or on a post at the end of a driveway if the building is not visible from the road.  The numbers should be reflective and a minimum of 3 inches high and 2 1/2 inches wide.  This is important to the ability of emergency response units to respond rapidly.  The 911 addresses were changed in 2004 to enable emergency vehicles to more easily find locations. 


Reflective 911 Address Numbers Available
