For the last several months you may have seen all the flyers in businesses around Elmore County reminding everyone of the importance of marking your address whether it be in the heart of the city or in the rural areas. When you pull in your driveway think "
can first responders see my address, can they find my home if I had an emergency?"
When the weather changes, fire accidents increase whether it be in your house or that brush pile you are burning. Fire departments need your addresses marked to be able to locate you. As one citizen stated “that’s not a problem they can follow the smoke”. That may work unless your emergency is a heat attack or other medical emergency.
DON’T LET IT BE YOU OR A FAMILY MEMBER.
Signs can be purchased at the E9-1-1 Administrative office. 8935 US 231 Room 188, Wetumpka. ( we are in the judicial building).
