Importance of Clear Numeric Addressing
Walt Goodman, Firefighter Station 14 - Wednesday, March 09, 2016

When seconds count, is your numeric address clearly visible to first responders? The Boone County Fire Protection District would like to remind residents of the importance of clearly addressing their homes and driveways so that they firefighters and ambulance personnel can easily locate them in the event of an emergency.

Reflective material, visible from the street or road, is recommended with 4-inch high lettering whenever possible and visible from both directions. Clearly numbered mailboxes or signs at the end of long driveways are important just as important. In some locations where several mailboxes have been grouped near driveways, additional signs are particularly necessary. Clearly marked addresses on homes that share a driveway are also vitally important.

A good rule of thumb is to ask yourself: “would I be able to locate my house for the first time at 3 a.m. in the rain or otherwise low visibility?” Nobody wants an emergency to happen, but if you or a family member is in trouble, will 911 first responders be able to find you?
