House Number Visibility

Make sure your house number can be seen from the road

Help us help you! The Township of Jefferson Public Safety is asking residents to ensure that their house number is prominently displayed on the front of every residence. This helps emergency services to quickly locate homes in the event of an emergency. There have been several instances recently where township emergency services had to waste time searching for homes that were not marked. Additionally, should emergency services be needed, we ask residents, if possible, to unlock the front door and at night to leave outside lights on.

The number on the mail box is not acceptable, as the mail box is postal property and the postal service regulates what can go on and in the mail box. Also not all mailboxes are always on the same side of the street as the home or in front of the home. Supplemental house numbering is an option should a home not be visible from the road. The recommendation is for the number to be visible coming from either direction on a street, as noted in the ordinance.
