It is very important that address
numbers are easily seen from the street to assist emergency personnel in
quickly locating the appropriate address. Reflective numbers are best for
night time visibility.
Apartments: Complex address numbers should be at least
six inches in height, contrast with the background, and be visible from the
street. Post apartment numbers conspicuously, contrasting with background,
and at least three inches in height.
Home owners: Make sure your address is clearly readable
at night, 100 feet or more from either direction, by vehicles traveling on
main roadway. If you don't have time, tools or skills to improve your
address visibility yourself, you can contact your local fire department for
assistance or have a local sign company make up a clearly visible address
marker for mounting near the roadway.
