In an emergency, minutes lost looking for an address can mean the difference between life and death, a home saved or a home lost.
For this reason, South Pend Oreille Fire and Rescue Firefighters would like to extend the opportunity for you to cut minutes off their response time by offering highly reflective blue and white address signs. Installation of these signs at your driveway entrance or as a number for the house will provide added assurance that the correct address can be located faster in an emergency situation.
The SPOFR Firefighters will custom make an address sign for you that will be visible at the road and may save precious minutes if ever firefighters or emergency medical services personnel need to locate your address. The signs are 6"x 24" or 6" x 36" double sided BLUE REFLECTIVE aluminum with 4" WHITE reflective numbering on one or two sides.
Address signs are only $20 each.
