Help us help you. Always have your house numbers displayed and visible from the street so we
can easily find your home. Most houses, up to about 40 feet from the street, and mail boxes
should have atleast numbers 4 inches in height displayed. The further your house is from the
street the larger the numbers should be. The color of the numbers should contrast from the back
ground color. Your numbers should be displayed on your mailbox and on your home., especially
on driveways with multiple houses. Due to lack of lighting we would like to see reflective numbers
to help emergency crews find you quickly.
