911 Information

Someone in your home calls 911 for HELP!  Ambulance, Police and or Fire Department respond, at once.

PLEASE TAKE A COUPLE OF MINUTES TO POST YOUR 911 NUMBER PROPERLY.

Try to visualize, through your eyes and mind, how and where emergency personnel would be looking to find your home. The more obvious and outstanding your numbers are, the quicker and easier it will result in you getting help. Where would you look if you were driving the emergency vehicle?

Read the following E-911 Law and look at the sketches that follow.

SHOULD YOU NEED HELP OR HAVE QUESTIONS, contact the Supervisor's office.
