Green Reflective Address Sign
First responders need to be able to find your residence at any time & especially in emergencies. The more you help make their job easier, the faster they can move through neighborhoods helping everyone.
Reflective address signs (referred to as ‘911’ signs) are the best way to ensure first responders can find you. They are especially critical in areas where multiple residences share a common driveway. Napa County Fire Dept. regulations provide specifications for these required signs. Signs are generally 6” height by 18” – 24” width, with 4” reflective numbers on a green background, oriented either vertically or horizontally, and must be double-sided so they are visible from both directions.
Spring Mountain Fire Safe Council’s goal is to ensure that the 200+ parcels with in the FSC boundary have installed these life-saving signs through a coordinated effort by Neighborhood Block Captains.
