Unmarked or hard to find address numbers are a common problem for many Fire Districts. Precious minutes can be spent as first responders search for a house that does not have a marked address or the numbers are hard to see from the road. This is why it is so important to have large, reflective numbers on your mailbox. If a mailbox is not present, place the numbers on the street side of your house where they can be seen easily from the roadway.
Green, reflective address signs are available through the Cortez Fire Protection District. An example is shown in the picture above. Signs are available for a $20 donation at the CFPD, Station #1 Administration office on North Washington. Senior citizens and Military Veterans only can receive their address sign for free.
