People are quick to call 911 when there's an emergency and often identify their location. But, what if that location is not easy to find? The Methuen Fire Department has been working hard for years to educate the community about the importance of visible house numbers. Legally numbers need to be viewable from the street. The Methuen Fire Department asks a a little bit more: the numbers be on, above, or next to the front door in block numbers in contrast to the color of the house. Visible house numbers are essential for first responders so that they can get to an emergency as fast as possible.
Thank you for all that you do to keep our community safe.
