Help Us Help YOU!
"We can't help you... if we can't FIND you!"
For the most part, your family, friends, postal carrier, etc. know where you live. And when someone that has never been there before can’t find your house, time is usually no big deal; they can find a phone and call for directions.
But it CAN be a big deal if someone can’t find you quickly when a fire or a medical emergency occurs! Fire, ambulance, and police personnel who have never been to your house need to be able to locate you quickly when you call. If your home and/or mailbox does not CLEARLY show your address, it can delay vital emergency help to you or your neighbors. Minutes will seem like hours when you are waiting for help!
Help us to find you, the Moravian Falls Fire Department offers universally recognized numbers to clearly mark your home or business.
We offer this as a service and as a fundraiser for our fire department.
- You purchase, you install: $20.00
- For a second sign: $15.00 (i.e. for multiple homes on a driveway)
- Purchase the sign and a firefighter will install: $50.00
- The additional fee is a donation to the fire department fire truck restoration fund.
Senior citizens receive a discount ($15 per sign) and free installation if you have financial limitations.
We also have signposts available to purchase.
- The signs are made of aluminum (same grade as road signs) with a reflective color backing
- 3″ reflective white numbers on both sides
- 6″ wide and 18″ tall
- They are designed to be installed on a mailbox post for the greatest visibility from the street
Every second counts during a fire, police or medical emergency. Valuable time can be lost if your house number is not clearly posted where emergency responders can see it. Police officers, firefighters and EMS responders can’t provide lifesaving services to you and your family if they cannot find your house. The Moravian Falls Fire Department is offering to provide you with a highly-visible sign in order for responders to locate your residence in a more timely manner, potentially saving time… and lives!
If you are interested in a sign post along with your sign, please make that note when you contact us to order.
Outside the district?
What if I don’t live in the Moravian Falls fire district? Can I still order an address sign?
You sure can! Just print out one of our order forms (the link is below) and send it in with payment. We encourage EVERYONE to make sure that their house or business can be quickly located in an emergency, so we are not limiting our address sign program to our fire district residents. Our neighboring chiefs and firefighters endorse and recommend a sign program to their residents also. The more people we can help, the more lives and property we all can potentially save!!
