If We Can't Find You, We Can't Help You!    

 

In an Emergency, Seconds Count! Clearly visible house numbers are vitally important

in saving precious time when firefighters, police, or paramedics must respond to your home.

 

House numbers should be:

  • In plain, block numerals on a contrasting background.

  • Unobstructed and large enough to be seen from the road.

  • Facing the street named in your address.

  • Displayed at your driveway entrance if your house is not visible from the road. 

 

 

How to display house numbers 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

If your house is not visible from the road or is too far from the road for numbers

to be seen at night (examples 1 & 2), display your address at both the driveway

entrance and on your house - Especially if sharing a driveway. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Even if your house is close to the road, displaying your address on both the house and

at your driveway entrance will help emergency personnel locate your house quickly

(example 3).

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Always display numbers horizontally (example 4). Reflective numbers are very

helpful, if large enough to be seen from a distance.
