document icon House Numbers Save Lives

In the case of an emergency, a difference in minutes can mean the difference between life and death. Emergency personnel are equipped with many tools to help improve their arrival time. However, house numbers are imperative for a quick reference. The more camouflaged and hard to find the numbers are, the longer it will take emergency personnel to arrive at the scene. So you may be wondering, what are some of the requirements for house numbers? Attached is the Waterford Township Ordinance if you need more information. Make your numbers visible from the street.

§ 100-1Numbering required.
