One of the questions that is asked when you call "9-1-1" for assistance is: "What is your Address?" Many addresses in our area require that the caller give 911 detailed information on how to find their driveway or access road for emergency responders to provide rapid assistance. Instructions like, "Take the third driveway from the intersection and turn right, and then go to the second left and we live in the blue house.
The Quincy Fire Department will be making available 6' x 13' reflective address signs and mounting posts to all interested property owners of the fire district. These signs are installed at the beginning of the driveway or common access road to properly identify your residence from the street. If the common access serves several homes, it may be necessary to place additional signs to clarify the entrance to your home.
It is Quincy Fire Protection District's goal to have all occupancies with legible and visible addresses in the event of an emergency we can find you. The Quincy Volunteer Fire Department provides this service and installation.
