Is Your Address Sign Visible?

Is Your Address Sign Visible?

The Oak Forest Fire Department wants to remind residents the importance of making sure your address is clearly visible in the day and night.  It is one of the easiest actions you can take to keep your family safe.  If your home address is tough to see from the street, this can cost first responders valuable minutes when they are responding to an emergency at your home.

When your home address is easily visible from the street during daylight hours and at night, you are giving your family the very best chance of receiving help in time.

A few simple things you can do to increase the visibility of your home address include lighting the address numbers on your home and having a minimum of 6-inch numbers/letters on your house.  These are both inexpensive fixes that could make all the difference in an emergency.
