Can We Find Your Home?

In an emergency, minutes count. If there was an emergency at your home, could we easily find your driveway? Maybe you share a driveway with your neighbor. Is there a marking at the fork which way to turn?

If you do not already have one, please consider contacting us for a 911 address sign. Signs are double sided and coated with high visibility reflective green material with high visibility and reflective numbers making address identification fast and easy for emergency services.

The cost is $25 per sign which includes a free 5 ft. signpost if needed, as well as installation by a Hinesburg Fire Department member.

For more information about our 911 address sign program, or to place an order, please feel free to stop at the Fire Station, leave a message at the station, 802-482-2455 or email 911signs@hinesburgfd.org

We thank you for your support. Please remember to always practice fire safety in your home, as well as always being safe and courteous while driving.
