Glassy Mountain fire department sponsoring 911 reflective address signsPublished 7:14pm Thursday, March 14, 2013
When time can be your enemy, locating a caller’s address as soon as possible in an emergency is the first step in saving lives and property.
“There’s a big difference between knowing an address and being able to find an address, especially at night,” said Bryan Riebe, chief of the Glassy Mountain Fire Department. “To better help our fire and rescue services find your home in case of an emergency, Glassy Mountain Fire Department is offering the community 911 reflective emergency address signs for a nominal price.”
The signs are highly visible day or night, have reflective materials on both sides, are fade resistant, will last for years and have pre-drilled holes. If you need help installing your sign, GMFD will install your sign at no additional cost. If you do not have a mailbox next to your driveway, or if the post is not made of wood, GMFD will mount the sign to a post and install it for a small additional fee.
