House Number Project
In an emergency situation can emergency medical services, fire, or law enforcement quickly find your home? If not, please consider purchasing a sign which displays your home address in four inch reflective numbers. Today, enhanced 911 telephone service provides the dispatcher with the specific street address from a 911 call, even if the caller is not able to provide that information.
Valuable minutes may be lost in responding to your 911 call because of difficulty finding the correct address number at the victim’s residence.
What better gift can we give our parents or our family than this critical life-saving home identification?
Southwest Harbor - Tremont Ambulance Service is partnering with the Penobscot County Triad in arranging to have as many homes properly numbered as possible. Triad is a volunteer non-profit senior organization whose primary mission is the safety of seniors. These signs, which meet the 911 standards, are being manufactured at low cost by inmates at the Penobscot County Jail. You may choose to purchase just the reflective numbers (on a strong aluminum backer) to be applied in a highly visible location near your front door or at the end of the driveway; or a mailbox sign and bracket; or choose to additionally purchase the steel stake which is ready for installation.
If you have difficulty installing the sign, due to a disability or other reason, please make the ambulance, fire or police department aware. A public safety official will be glad to assist you.
