Public Safety

  • Public Safety Information

  • Address numbers must be visible from the street.
  • Address numbers should be placed on a contrasting background, with a reflective coating on the numbers for easy visibility at night.
  • Repair or replace aging address number placards, especially on mailboxes that are a distance from the front of the residence.
  • Tend to any bushes, tree limbs or other growth that has covered your address numbers.
  • Address numbers should be placed on or beside the front door. If your door is not easily seen from the street, put the numbers on a post, fence or tree at the driveway entrance so they can be clearly seen from the street. In addition to address numbers on the front door of your house, if you have a rural-style mailbox, reflective and contrasting numbers should be placed on both sides of the box so they can be seen by an emergency vehicle approaching from either direction.
  • In Case of Evacuation
    • Listen to a battery-powered radio for the location of emergency shelters.
    • Follow instructions of local officials.
    • Wear protective clothing and sturdy shoes.
    • Take your Disaster Supplies Kit.
    • Lock your home.
    • Use travel routes specified by local officials.
