Why is it necessary to post my street number?
Emergency vehicles may need to find your home quickly should an emergency occur. It is difficult to find a home or business with address numbers that are not clearly posted. House numbers should be at least four inches tall and should be visible up to 150 feet from all angles. Numbers should be in a contrasting color to the color scheme of the building, gate, or door. Be sure the numbers can be seen at night and that vegetation growth is not covering the numbers.
