Finding Your Address

It's the middle of the night and you or a loved one is sick or injured and is in immediate need of Emergency Medical Services. When seconds count, finding your address quickly can mean the difference between life and death.

When Fire Department crews are searching a street for a particular house in an emergency, it is often difficult to read addresses. Sometimes the numbers are too small to see from the road, or are obscured by trees and other objects, or are painted a color too close to the color of the house and even in some cases are absent altogether. Especially time-consuming to read are the handwritten numbers such as 'Seven Thousand Four Hundred and Twenty Eight'.

Reflective Address Signs
Reflective Address Signs make finding a house during an emergency much faster. The Waterford Professional Fire Fighters have decided to offer these signs to the citizens of Waterford at a minimal cost. They are made of the same reflective material and have the same color combination as standard street signs. All signs are predrilled, easy to install and are available in either a vertical or horizontal orientation.

Reflective Address Signs can be obtained at the Waterford Fire Department Headquarters, located at:
2495 Crescent Lake Road
Waterford, MI 48340

The cost is ONLY $15 and all proceeds go to the Fire Relief Fund.
