Central Saanich Reflective Address Sign Program
Your Central Saanich Fire Department is excited to announce the launch of their new Reflective Address Sign Program and is asking residents to help make their homes easier to find by marking their driveways.
In an emergency, every second counts. A few minutes may be too late in a medical emergency or fire. The quicker we can reach your home in a crisis, the faster we can help. After nightfall or in adverse weather conditions, it can be challenging to identify a house or locate a particular driveway, especially in rural areas.
To make your home easier to find at any time, we are asking that you participate in the Reflective Address Sign Program. The Program provides a prominent way of displaying your home address and helps our emergency personnel deliver the assistance of need quickly during an emergency.
Used in many municipalities, these blue and white reflective markers are all the same colour and shape and are easier to see by approaching emergency responders during night hours or bad weather conditions.
"Our rural community has a variety of complex and hidden driveways and during dusk, dawn and at night it can be a challenge to locate the proper house number when responding to an emergency,” said Kenn Mount, Fire Chief for Central Saanich. “With the addition of a reflective marker sign, we can see and verify the correct address immediately and not waste time trying to look for the correct driveway to your home.”
Residents can order a sign for a flat fee of $65 payable in person by cash, cheque, credit or debit.
