In an emergency, seconds count. Precious time can be wasted trying to locate an unmarked house. Help your local emergency service providers by displaying your house number.
- House numbers should be displayed on the building, or in front of it, in a prominent and conspicuous place and in such manner as to be legible from the street.
- All numbers should be at least 3 inches in height, and be located approximately 4 feet above the ground.
- The colors of said numbers should be in sharp contrast to the color of their background.
- When practical, the numbers should be placed near a light so that they may be readily seen at night. If the numbers are not illuminated, they should be reflective.
- The street number must be visible from both directions.
- If the house is more than 75 feet from the roadway, the number should be displayed on a post or mailbox, no farther than 25 feet from the edge of the street, and on the same side of the street as the house.
- In the event that more than one house has access from a single driveway, the number of the house must be displayed at each location at which the driveway diverges, in addition to being displayed on the house.
