Why is this important?
In an emergency, it is critical that first responders can find your home. We sometimes receive emergency support services from Fire and Police agencies from all over the Bay Area. Our roads are narrow and curvy, and it is easy to get turned around. Clear numbers help first responders find their way.
Along with the challenges of our terrain, house address numbers are sometimes worn out, or a house is very far back from the main road, or obscured by vegetation. Also, driving at night or in smoky or foggy conditions makes it harder if the numbers are not reflective or the address is not well lit.
If your residential home numbers need some work, please do so soon! You never know when an emergency may take place, and our first responders want to be able to respond as quickly as possible.
