Help us locate you in an emergency!

The town office is taking orders for house number signs so that emergency personnel can locate you in an emergency.  The signs are green with reflective silver numbers and may be mounted either horizontally or vertically to your mailbox or other sign post near the road.  The fire department and first responder personnel sometimes have difficulties locating people, especially at night, due to no street numbers or numbers not visible from the road.  You may order your sign for $12.00 by either stopping by the town office or completing the form attached here, and returning with your check to the town office.  Please feel free to contact the town office with any questions.
