If you had an emergency at your house, is your home address clearly marked so we could identify your house and respond in a timely matter?
When someone has a heart attack, or a house is on fire, minutes make a difference! Some questions to ask yourself about your address are:
- Is it CLEARLY marked?
- Can house numbers be seen from the road?
- If your home is hidden in the trees, is there some clear address identification visible from the road?
- Are house numbers clearly visible on a mail box?
- Can it be read at NIGHT?
- Are house numbers reflective?
- Can it be seen from BOTH directions?
Free address markers are available from the South Bay Fire Department. If you live in the district and need a marker or know someone else within the district who needs a marker, please stop by our headquarters to complete a request form or fill out the form below and hit submit.
Once the marker is done (up to two weeks), you will be called and one of our fire fighters will deliver and install the marker for you.. Markers will be installed by the department free of charge.
