Address Signs Could Help Save Lives in an Emergency

[slideshow_deploy id=’54113′]

Many rural Williams’s residents are risking their lives and property by not having their addresses plainly marked so that emergency personnel can find them quickly in the event of an emergency.

“Times have changed,” said Williams Fire Department Office Manager, Kara Alvernaz, “in the old days, the firefighters knew where everyone lived. We now have a lot of new residents and volunteers, and it can be difficult to locate addresses when they are not correctly marked.”

The Williams Professional Firefighters Association now has green reflective address signs available to purchase for $20 each.

As a fund-raiser for the WPFA, the group hopes to take their rescue efforts even further.

“The signs will help with response time,” said Williams Professional Firefighter, Paul Seaver, “by increasing visibility we will be able to locate addresses faster.”

The signs are made with a highly reflective coating that reflects headlights even in the poorest weather conditions, and are highly visible during daylight.

“The signs are custom made at the time of order,” said Seaver, “they are generally made within a few minutes.”

The signs can be attached to the residences rural mail boxes, fence post, or on a separate pole.

“If you are a senior citizen and need help obtaining an address sign, we have firefighters that are willing to lend a helping hand,” said Alvernaz.

The signs can be purchased for $20 at the Williams Fire Department located at 810 ‘E’ Street, or by calling (530) 473-2269.

Proceeds from sign sales will help aid the Williams Professional Fire Fighters Association.
