Reflective Address Signs Available

In an emergency, minutes lost looking for an address can mean the difference between life and death, a home saved or a home lost.

Fire fighters in Fire District 8 are offering highly reflective, red and white address signs to increase visibility for emergency services. Signs are $20.00 each which includes brackets and lag bolts for mounting. Call the station or email us to order yours or to learn more.
