What's Your Address?
Help Us Find You When An Emergency Occurs
In an emergency, seconds count. Finding the correct address can be challenging at times, particularly on a dark, rainy or snowy night. You can help us locate you faster by posting your 9-1-1 address where it can be easily seen and read.
Tips for posting your address:
Use large, reflective numbers (available from the local hardware store).
Position the numbers so they face the street and are not obstructed by tree limbs, shrubs, hanfing flower baskets, etc.. Keep in mind that our fire truck seats are higher than a pickup truck's. Our view point is different from a pedestrian walking past your house.
Insure that columns, railings or other objects do not block our view of the address as we approach from either direction.
For Best Visibility, We Recommend:
The "county designed" 9-1-1 address signs (see photo at left). These signs are highly reflective and available from the following vendors:
1233 Route 9 - Columbiaville, NY
NEXT GEN SIGNS (Former Signs by Design)
Ghent , NY 12075
