Did you know that in the event of an emergency it makes the task of locating your home more of a challenge for ambulance, fire and police responders if they are unaware of where you live. A correctly posted house number could be the difference between life and death.

You should be aware that your house number needs to be conspicuously placed somewhere on your property as per Township Ordinance 95-7. You are required to restore or replace any number (s) that shall have been removed or destroyed.

Also, if your house is not visible from the roadway, because you live down a lane or have a long driveway, you should place some type of display that lists your house number at the beginning of the lane or driveway.
