Property owners and renters in rural areas are reminded to check their street address signage to ensure their address number is visible and accurate. Building and lot addresses must be clearly signed to assist emergency responders in finding your location.
Common problems with rural address signage include:
- No address signage: Property owners must ensure that adequate address signage is present at the road and visible by both directions of traffic.
- Obstructed signs: Property owners/renters must maintain trees, shrubs and other landscaping to ensure the address sign is not obstructed.
- Mismatched signs: Property owners must ensure that any address numbers on their building match the 911 road signs where applicable.
- Damaged signs: 911 road signs with a bent post or other damage must be replaced by the property owner.
To replace a damaged or missing 911 sign, contact The County’s Damage Prevention team at email@example.com or 613.476.2148 extension 4018. Sign posts are $15 and signs are $20. Installation is the responsibility of the property owner.
