It’s no secret that many of the roads around town get very dark at night, and many mailboxes and homes do not have clearly marked numbers on them. When responding to an emergency, this can make things very difficult for our members in locating the address in a timely manner. Our members go through rigorous driver training, part of which is knowledge of the roads and locations within our district. However, much of the time without clear markings, it can hinder emergency response.
To help combat this issue, we have launched a program to provide residents with custom address signs, like the ones in the picture below:
The sign can be mounted vertically on a mailbox post as shown above; vertically to a dedicated, separate stake; or horizontally to meet whatever requirements necessary. The form is available below, simply print it, fill it out and return it to the Fire Station, or swing by during Fish & Chips any Friday from 4-7pm to pick up the form. Cost is $20 and signs will be available 1 week after receipt of the form.
The members of NSFD thank you for your participation in this program and, as always, appreciate the opportunity to serve the residents of the Town of Scituate.
