We Can't Help You, If We Can't Find You
When emergency services are requested, there is the expectation of immediate response. Unlabelled residences or poorly displayed addresses lead to slower response times. "We can't help you, if we can't find you."
Address numbers should be clearly visible from the road. If your residence is located back from the road, or you have a hidden driveway, you are encouraged to display your address at the roadside and again on your home. If there is an alley behind your house, label both the front and back of your house as an extra measure of safety.
The goal of Snohomish County Fire Protection Districts is to provide immediate assistance in an emergency situation. All residents can do their part by making sure their addresses are clearly visible.
