Area emergency personnel are pleading with residents to post their house numbers prominently on their homes and mail boxes.

— “If the house/structure is not visible from the road and no mail box is beside the driveway leading to the house/structure, a sign or number post shall be erected to display the number. This sign or number post may display the number either vertically, from the top down, or horizontally.

“The structure number must be placed high enough so that it will not be obscured by snow during an average winter.

“The structure’s number must be visible from the street or road, and shall not be or allowed to become obscured by tress, brush or otherwise.

“The number shall be reflected, 3 to 4 inches in size, and if affixed to a mail box the number shall be on both sides.”

People who do not have their homes properly numbered can be fined up to $100 a day, according to the law.

Jaquish admitted the law is not well enforced.

“Who’s going to enforce it,” Jaquish said of the 911 law. “I know I don’t want to be the 911 police.”
