Emergency Management Council

Remember to properly identify your house for emergency responders: please adhere to the following from our Building and Housing code 11-4.4:


 The street numbers to be displayed for each building shall be visible from the street on the improved premises in question and otherwise separately mounted in an approved manner upon the face of a wall or upon a post in the front yard of the premises.  Same shall be sufficiently legible as to contrasting background arrangement, space and uniformity so as to be clearly visible from the street both night and day and reflective or illuminated numbers are required. The numbers shall be so placed that trees, shrubs and other obstructions do not block the line of sight of the numbers from the center of the street (and the property owner shall be responsible for maintaining same and the line of sight).  The numbers shall be mounted at a height between four (4) feet and ten (10) feet above the street and adjacent grade.

 If the house or building has a setback location of greater than fifty (50) feet, then the owner, occupant or lessee shall also provide a post, rod or other type of fixture of a substantial nature including a mailbox with the number affixed thereon and so located on the premises near where the driveway enters the street so that the numbers shall be conspicuous and visible from both directions of the street upon which the building fronts and comply with all provisions of this section.
