House Numbers Being Sold By Emergency Services

House Numbers Being Sold By Emergency Services

housenumbersEmergency service providers from across Potter County continue a special fundraiser that also enhances public safety. They’re selling reflective address signs that mark a property’s official 9-1-1 address for firefighters and life support services. “Fog, rain and snow or other adverse weather, as well as the cover of darkness, can make it difficult or even impossible to see house numbers,” said a spokesman for the Potter County Local Emergency Planning Committee. 

“Reflective signs are highly visible. Posted at the end of a driveway, they could save emergency responders precious time, potentially saving lives and property.”
Some county and local governments in Pennsylvania have mandated that each property owner acquire and post an official reflective sign. There are currently no such ordinances in Potter County. Cost for each sign ranges from $15 to $20. Proceeds support volunteer fire and ambulance services. 

To arrange for sign purchases, contact local emergency service agencies or call the Potter County Department of Emergency Services at 274-8900.

Why isn't it required in Potter County ? Every residence and camp needs to have a #.

How come our townships and boroughs do not have ordinances requiring the use of these house numbers?

How come ...

When has anyone passed an ordinance that favored the average person?

Many of them already do but nobody pays attention to them so what is the difference?

My address on my mailbox should be good enough! I'm not going to pay 15 or 20 dollars for that sign. Times are tough!
