Safety Tips

In an emergency, home addresses must be clearly visible! Remember, If we can't find you, we can't help you!

In an emergency every second counts! Make sure your address numbers are clearly visible for the Fire and Police Departments to see. Install a light above your numbers. Use large, plain numbers, not hard to read lettering. Use contrasting colors, not ones that blend into the color of your house. Remember, whether you live in the city or country, you should identify your property clearly.

The Defiance Fire Department currently sells green address number signs at the central station. You may call 419-782-2771 to order a sign. The signs can usually be picked up the same day.
