Posted address numbers could save a life

Accurate addresses can save precious seconds when police or firefighters respond to an emergency call. That’s why property owners are required by local law to have street numbers visible from both the street and the alley.

Address numbers at least three inches high should be posted on the front of each building, and on a garage or rear of the structure. Rear numbers are not required for houses that do not abut an alley.
